Personnel of the Rivers State Neighbourhood Safety Corps, a state government-backed vigilante group, have protested at the Government House in Port Harcourt to demand payment of several months of stipends which the state government owed them.

The protesters claimed that the government owed them for 15 months.

One of them, who is identified as Benjamin Saruwaji, said members of their families had suffered hardship and hunger.

The protesters also complained of not having “operational vehicles” to carry out the assignment given to them by the state government.

They therefore urged Governor Nyesom Wike to urgently intervene and pay them their stipends to end their “sufferings.”

The protesters, who did not meet the governor at the Government House, proceeded to his private residence at Ada George to try to get his attention.

SaharaReporters earlier reported that Wike allegedly bribed the PDP panel members and some members of the National Working Committee of the party with $5 million (N2.1billion at the official exchange rates) to beat Okowa.

Wike had 16 votes to Okowa’s three votes, making the Rivers State governor the winner of the contest.

But sources told SaharaReporters on Tuesday that Wike doled out $5million and promised to pay N10,000 for each vote cast for the party in the 2023 presidential election.

Similarly, Governor Wike reportedly lavished N30billion on PDP delegates at the party’s recent presidential primary election.
