@Politics Africa: Immunity is the reason Wike is not answering allegations – Lai Mohammed

Immunity is the reason Wike is not answer allegations – Lai Mohammed
The minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has revealed that if not for the immunity entrenched in the Nigeria Constitution against arrest and prosecution against a serving governor, the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike would have been answering allegations by now.
The Minister in a statement on Wednesday said, “As to the question about the allegation by the Governor of Rivers State that he has information that he will be assassinated by the federal government in a crowd, I think one of the beauties of being a governor is that you enjoy immunity from prosecution and arrest.”
However, Wike in his reaction to the statement of Lai Muhammed said it was unfortunate that the Federal Government will trivialize an issue of that sensitive nature.
Governor Wike said, “They don’t care about the issue of the protection of lives and property. That is why people are killed in their numbers everyday.
“But I will not be slaughtered easily. They will not succeed in their plot”, Governor Wike told newsmen in Port Harcourt last night.
He said that there were laid down constitutional processes of handling weighty issues of that nature, pointing out that it was unfortunate that the Federal Government has deliberately refused to follow the constitutional path.
