The Rivers state government has called on relevant security agencies to help uncover what really happened in the reported attack on Sen. Lee Maipa, alleging that some politicians are staging high-profile melodramas to cover up the tracks.
This was revealed, Thursday, in a statement signed by Chris Finebone, Commissioner for Information and Communications.
It is reported that gunmen attacked the home of Maepa, Chairman of the Presidential Campaign Council of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State on Thursday morning.
Maipa’s comment on the attack indicated that the gunmen were allegedly sent by the Rivers State government.
However, in a statement released on behalf of the government, Finebone said that Maipa should help the security services uncover the alleged attack on his home and those behind it.
Part of the statement read: “This shows that Senator Maipa should assist the security services in uncovering and behind the alleged attack on his home. It is not enough to blame such an attack on ‘the government or some constituency’. He should try to remember exactly Whom the caller said sent it (the caller).”
Finebone further confirmed that the Rivers State government will continue to work with security agencies and provide all possible assistance to ensure the safety of life and property in the state.
