The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State is asking security agencies to put Senator Magnus Abe under surveillance over comments it claimed could scuttle the peace of the state.
The Rivers PDP chairman, Mr Felix Obuah, described the directive by Senator Abe, that lawmakers elected on the platform of the All Progressives, APC, should invade the Assembly without being subjected to the oath of office, as demanded by law, as unbecoming of one who claims to be a federal lawmaker.
Mr Obuah in a statement expressed concern that Senator Abe had openly been making threatening remarks and boastings which, according to him, were very worrisome and likely to destabilise the corporate existence of the people of the State.
He said that although Senator Abe was known for unsavory and disrespectful attacks on the government and people of Rivers State, he had continued to make statements which were not only provocative and incisive, but seriously threaten the peace and security of the State.
“The PDP is worried at the way and manner Magnus Abe is talking and conducting himself as if he is now the Governor and Chief Security Officer of Rivers State,” Mr Obuah noted.
The PDP also claimed that some criminal gangs in the State refused to embrace the State government’s recently concluded amnesty, following attacks by Senator Abe on the well intended programme.
He wants security agencies to put Senator Abe under surveillance, claiming further that his actions, if not checked, could result to breakdown of law and order in the State.
