The Guardian reports that Tam-George made the revelation in a

statement released in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital.



According to the commissioner, the assassination attempts were foiled

by former Chief Security Officer who was suddenly withdrawn by the

Nigeria Police Force and six other officers who were also dismissed by

the Force in January 2017.



Tam-George accused the APC of being behind the plots. He claimed that

the party was making attempts on Wike's life because of the Peoples

Democratic Party's victory over it at the Supreme Court on Wike's

legitimacy as Rivers' chief executive.

He said:

"It is no secret that the All Progressives Congress (APC)

administration declared war on the government and people of Rivers

State, soon after the party lost the governorship litigation at the

Supreme Court in 2016."



Tam-George alleged that the first attempt on Wike's life happened just

after Nigeria's apex court confirmed Wike's victory at the April 2015

governorship election.



He added that after a series of futile attempts, two of the dismissed

six cops were offered N150 million to execute the malicious job but

they rejected the offer.



CAMPUSNAIJA.info recalls that Nyesom Wike of Rivers state had alleged

that the Inspector-General of Police Idris Ibrahim had given the new

Commissioner of Police posted to Rivers State a mandate to get him

assassinated.



Wike made the allegation while fielding questions from reporters on

Saturday, April 8.
