Rivers State Governor , Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that the government and people  of the state would no longer play host to the Officer in charge of Special Anti-Robbery Squad  ( SARS ), Mr Akin Fakorede as he is a threat to the security of the state .
The governor who said that he has  been vindicated , pointed out that Akin Fakorede is one of the two police officers  who are perpetually engaged in professional  misconduct in Rivers State .  The Second Officer  is the Assistant Commissioner of in charge of Operations , Steven Hasso .
Addressing  journalists in Port Harcourt yesterday  following the invitation  of Mr Akin  Fakorede by the Police High Command  after he  was allegedly  spotted in a viral video leading SARS Personnel  to invade the  Rivers East Senatorial District Collation centre , Governor Wike  said  that from all indications, the SARS  Commander was transferred  to  Rivers State to  destroy  the  security  architecture of the state .
The governor  regretted the invitation  extended to the embattled  SARS  Commander  to Abuja is merely aimed at sweeping  the crime against  democracy  under the carpet.
He said that providence  has made it possible  for the SARS  Commander  to be captured on video battering electoral officials and attempting to hijack election materials and results.
“It is unfortunate  that the Force Public Relations Officer would sit in Abuja and claim that the men who invaded the Rivers East Senatorial District Collation Office were not policemen.
“The Electoral Officer who was beaten up was clearly seen in the video holding unto Akin Fakorede .  This is very shameful .  The police we have today is not the police that we use to know.
“It pains me that this was the man that I have  complained about  to the Inspector-General of Police and anyone who cared to listen is doing a hatchet job in the state”.
The governor  stated that if left in the state , Akin Fakorede  would continue  to  connive with Armed Robbers  and cultists to  compromise  security  in the state.
He said even  during the March 19 Rerun elections , Akin Fakorede played very negative  roles which necessitated  his transfer back to the state.
