A former governor of Rivers State and Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, has assured the people of the state that those involved in the killing of Rivers people on New Year Day will face the wrath of the law.
Amaechi gave the hint in Omoku, the headquarters of Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area of Rivers State on Saturday, when he paid a condolence visit to the bereaved families.
The minister, who wept when addressing the people said, “The only thing I can assure you is that the perpetrators of this act will be brought to justice. They cannot run away from it. They can’t get away with this.
“I was at the hospital to see a little boy that was shot, and his father and mother killed. How do you want that little boy to live? How would he cope in life? They must pay for their actions.”
Meanwhile, the minister has again, accused the Nyesom Wike-led administration in Rivers State of failing to protect the lives of Rivers people.
