Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike has declared a House of Representatives member and governorship aspirant, Farah Dagogo, wanted for allegedly hiring cultists to attack the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) secretariat in Port Harcourt.
The Governor, in a statement by his Special Assistant, Media, Kelvin Ebiri, directed the Rivers State Police Command to arrest Dagogo.
Wike accused the federal lawmaker of hiring cultists, who stormed the PDP secretariat in Port Harcourt and disrupted the screening of aspirants for various elective positions.
“The Police must as a matter of urgency arrest Farah Dagogo, wherever he is, and must be made to face prosecution.
“Already, some the hoodlums hired by Farah Dagogo have been arrested and will be made to face the full wrath of the law,” the statement reads.
But a source close to the lawmaker said Dagogo knew nothing about the incident at the PDP secretariat.
He explained that a group of aspirants vying for the House of Assembly and National Assembly tickets protested the refusal of the PDP Committee to screen.
He said: “While they were addressing journalists at the PDP secretariat, policemen arrived the scene and started shooting into the air.
“They arrested some of the aspirants and took them away. Dagogo was not there. Why will they declare him wanted?”
