Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike on Tuesday stated that he doesn’t believe Director General of the Department of State Services, Mr Lawal Daura was sacked due to the invasion of National Assembly by officials of the security agency.

According to the governor, he is unaware of the reason behind the sack, adding that the Inspector General of Police did same thing at the Benue State House of Assembly, but nothing has happened to him.

“I don’t believe he was sacked due to the invasion, because the Inspector General of Police did same thing at the Benue State House of Assembly, but nothing has happened to the Inspector General of Police,” he said.

He wondered why the APC Federal Government is bent on impeaching Saraki and Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu when they don’t have the number.

“These people forget history. Tambuwal was elected Speaker in PDP but he defected to the APC and did not resign”, the governor said.

Wike, however, declared that the nation’s democracy is under threat as result of the military-terrorist style of the present administration.

“I have said it before and I will continue to say it. There is a threat to democracy. When they started with Judiciary, I raised alarm that this thing will happen to all arms of government. Now it has spread to the legislative arm. If well meaning Nigerians don’t speak up, our democracy will be truncated. Just one week ago, they laid siege and locked the Benue State House of Assembly . To the chagrin of all Nigerians, they invaded the beacon of democracy at the Federal Level,” the governor said.
