Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has tackled the Buhari dictatorship, saying that the criminal invasion of the residence of Supreme Court judge Justice Mary Odili, carried out by lawless security forces, was an assassination attempt.
Wike spoke at a press conference in Abuja on Sunday, October 31, with Rivers State Leaders of Thought. He insisted that the Buhari dictatorship will be held responsible in the event that anything happens to the family of Odili.
He said a series of events had shown that Odili’s family was being targeted by the Buhari dictatorship.
“Today we want to tell the world that should anything befall the family of Dr Peter Odili, the Federal Government should be held accountable because their conducts have shown that there is something they are about to carry out.
“If any danger befalls My Lord Justice Mary Odili, her children and her husband, the Federal Government must be held responsible for it.
“This is the position of the Government of Rivers State and its people.
“It is clear that what happened was an attempt to assassinate Justice Mary Odili, her children and her husband because there are no two ways about it.
“And if they had succeeded in eliminating them, the Federal Government would have simply just told us: ‘we’ll get to the root of the matter.’ That’s their normal language. And then, one or two weeks after, everybody will be quiet.
“But this will not happen in the same manner because this is clearly an assassination attempt,” the governor insisted.
On Saturday, October 30, CitizensAlert reported that the whereabouts of Justice Mary Odili were unknown after security forces acting on the order of the Buhari dictatorship criminally invaded the judge’s residence in Abuja without a judicial order backing their action.
It has however been revealed that the criminal invasion was political. Sources said the hawks in the Buhari dictatorship are trying to fire the incumbent Chief Justice of Nigeria [CJN] Tanko Mohammed from his position after having failed to implement the wishes of dictator Buhari’s cabal. The desperate hawks, who make top decisions in Nigeria, have since realised that should Tanko be fired from his position, Justice Mary Odili will be the next in line to take Tanko’s place.
Dictator Buhari’s hawks believe that Odili is more of a “PDP person,” and this is further compounded by the region of the country she comes from.
Despite the fact that Odili is expected to retire in 2022 when she becomes 70, the cabal does not want her to be Nigeria’s Chief Justice for an hour. The cabal has decided therefore to harass her as a way of telling her that she cannot occupy the position, something they know dictator Buhari will be pleased with, considering that he has been a sectional leader who marginalises every other region except the North.
The cabal harassing Justice Odili is headed by Nigeria’s notorious Attorney-General Abubakar Malami, who carefully fixed the date of the criminal invasion on Friday, October 29, the same day dictator Buhari returned from Saudi Arabia. Sources said the sinking attorney-general did it to please dictator Buhari in a bid to show his loyalty to the tyrant amidst revelations that Buhari intends to dismiss him.
