Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has alleged that the Federal Government is plotting to frame him up.
Wike made the allegation on Sunday at a thanksgiving service in honour of the Chairman of Rivers State Local Government Service Commission, Azubuike Nmerukini, at the St Thomas Anglican Church, Diobu.
“I am alerting Nigerians now because the I know the police high command will sweep the matter under the carpet,” he alleged.
He added that, “The Federal Government has arranged with a Lebanese to say that I told him to buy arms for the purpose of the forthcoming elections.
“I am not close to any Lebanese, let alone give money to anyone to buy arms for elections. We have dutifully served our people and we don’t need to purchase arms for elections.
“If elections are held 20, 000 times, we will win because our projects have positively impacted the lives of our people.“
