APC Rivers state accuses state govt of being responsible for the murder of their lawyer, Ken Atsuwete

APC Rivers state chapter has accused the state government of being behind the murder of one the state party's legal representatives, Ken Atsuwete. The deceased who was one of the lead counsel to the detained former chairman of Asari-Toru local government area, Ojukaye Flag-Amachree, was murdered on Sunday night August 28th by unknown gunmen near his residence at Aluu community in Ikwerre local government area of the state.

Deputy Chairman of APC in the state, Prince Peter Odike, made the allegation while speaking with newsmen at the party’s secretariat in Port Harcourt yesterday
“The APC wishes to be on record that the Rivers State Government and their agents must be held responsible for the killing of Barrister Ken Atsuwete and the reasons for our charge are obvious and lucid. Late Ken Atswete was one of the leading counsels to APC chieftain, Hon. Ojukaye Flag-Amachree who is presently incarcerated on trumped-up charges surreptitiously inspired and driven by the Rivers State Government led by Governor Nyesom Wike. Officials of the state government have variously vowed to teach the APC and its leader, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi a lesson by jailing one of its most active leaders, Hon. Flag-Amachree. However, Ken Atswete, as counsel to Flag-Amachree, had thrown in everything into the defence of his client to the chagrin of officials of the state government who are the traducers of Ojukaye Flag-Amachree. Again, late Ken Atswete had not relented in standing with citizens and public servants against the wrongful use of state power. The many cases he has instituted in this regard attest to that fact”he said
