The chairman, Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) Bro Felix Obuah has blamed desperate individual politicians of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) of being behind the continued youth restiveness and cultist activities in Ogoni land.

Bro Obuah who made the declaration through a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam said why plans are underway to ensure relative peace in Ogoni, no form of sabotage will be tolerated this time from any quarters to scuttle this second chance.

The State PDP boss was speaking against the backdrop of recent revelations of alleged support and directives by Mr Barry Mpigi, the member representing Oyigbo – Tai Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives to carry arms on the day of the re-run election.

Insisting that the rejection of the first phase of the amnesty programme by the cultists and militants in Ogoni was born out of the support and protection from the like of Barry Mpigi

 Bro Obuah said the irony of it all is the killings and burning of the houses of innocent Ogoni people irrespective of party affiliations.

Bro Obuah is however shocked that the security agencies who were aware of Mpigi’s instigations at an APC rally in Tai Local Government Area of Rivers State which were an open declaration that the youths should carry arms on the Election Day.
