We never arrested Amaechi – Police



THE Rivers State Police Command has denied reports that the Minister of Transportation, Mr. Chibuike Amaechi was arrested yesterday by the new Commissioner of Police in the state, Usman Belel, on allegations of corruption, stating that the purported arrest is intended to cause a breakdown of law and order in the state.
A report had gone viral alleging that Amaechi was arrested by Belel on corruption charges. In a statement signed by the Nnamdi Omoni, the PRO of the River State Police Command,  urged members of the public to disregard the report as it is targeted at blackmailing the CP.
The statement read: “The attention of the Rivers State Police Command has been drawn to an item of news making the rounds in the Social Media, credited to AIT Nigeria News, on the purported arrest of the Ex- Governor of Rivers State and Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi in his home by the Commissioner of Police, Rivers State Police Command at the early hours of Wednesday on the allegation of corruption, directed by the Inspector General of Police.
“It has become increasingly necessary at this stage to put the records straight and state unequivocally as follows: That the Ex-Governor of Rivers State and Hon. Minister of Transportation, RT Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi was never arrested by the Commissioner of Police, Rivers State Command or any Security Agency for that matter, as reported by the AIT medium.
“That the general public is hereby enjoined to disregard and discountenance the above news report as being mischievous, ill-conceived, diversionary and only intended to undermine the security situation in the State and harass the Nigeria Police Force and the person of the Ex-Governor and Hon. Minister of Transportation.”
