The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State has urged security agencies to investigate the activities of Senator Magnus Abe (Rivers Southeast), saying he is fond of making unguarded statements.
The party described the lawmaker as a security risk, whose activities should be checked.
Its chairman, Felix Obuah, deallegd that Abe has instigated the lawmakers on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to invade the House of Assembly without taking the oath of office as demanded by law.
He said the directive was unbecoming of a senator.
Obuah said in a statement in Port-Harcourt, the state capital, by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam, that Abe was plotting evil.
He alleged that the senator has been holding clandestine meetings to destabilise the state, urging the security agents to check him.
He said Abe was fond of unsavory and disrespectful attacks on the government of Rivers State, adding that his statements were provocative.
Obuah said the unguarded statements constituted a threat to the the peace and security of the state.
He added: “Magnus Abe has been making threatening remarks and boasting, which are very worrisome and likely to destabilise the the state.
“The PDP is worried at the way and manner Abe is talking and conducting himself as if he is now the governor and chief security officer of Rivers State.”
Obuah recalled that some criminal gangs in the state refused to embrace amnesty, following attacks by Abe on the well-intended programme.
The party chieftain said Abe has not recovered from the defeat of his party during the rerun.
He said he was jolted out of his delution when the people reected the PDP in favour of the PDP.
He urged security agencies to put the senator under surveillance, maintaining that his actions, if not checked, could lead to a breakdown of law and order. (The Nation)
