The alleged suspects

The police all, but directly accused the Rivers State Government of procuring the hoodlums who carried out various attacks in parts of the state during the National Assembly rerun elections, held on December 10.

Parading some of the suspects, who apart from allegedly snatching ballot materials, also killed a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), the police in a statement by Force spokesman, Donald Awunah, said that they gathered through intelligence of how the hoodlums were given full backing by the government.

He stated that the police recovered from them, a green Independent National Electoral Commission branded bag, eight booklets of ballot papers meant for Emohua Local Government Area, and one INEC accreditation incident reports booklet.

Other items recovered included, one statement of results booklet and one blood-stained All Progressives Congress agent card from the suspects–Noble Nwaerema, Dike Deinpiribo, Valentine Alalibo, Onwunari Warmate and Iloke Stephen.

Awunah, who said arms and ammunition recovered from the suspects included, one AK47 rifle, one assault rifle, six magazines and 112 rounds of live ammunition, listed those arrested to include:

a. Noble Nwaerema ‘m’
b. Dike Deinpiribo ‘m’
c. Valentine Alalibo ‘m’
d. Onwunari J. Warmate ‘m’
e. Iloke Stephen ‘m’

Exhibits recovered from the suspects include:

a. A green INEC branded bag
b. Eight (8) booklets of ballot papers meant for Emohua LGA
c. One (1) booklet of INEC Accreditation Incident Report Forms
d. One (1) booklet of statement of results
e. One (1) blood stained APC agent ID card

Arms and ammunition recovered from the suspects include:

a. One (1) AK47 rifle
b. One (1) assault rifle
c. Six (6) magazines
d. 112 rounds of live ammunition


“Noble Nwaerema ‘m’ 33 years on the 10th of December, 2016 was arrested by SARS operatives along RumusiElele. He claimed he was hired by the youth president of Itu-Ikwere community together with eight (8) others imported from a neighbouring state. They invaded Emouha Local Government and carted away electoral materials meant for polling units within the area. He was arrested with some of the exhibits while others are at large. Intelligence report confirmed the electoral materials were taken to a government facility and escorted by armed personnel.

“Dike Deinpiribo, Valentine Aldibo, Onwuarari J. Warmate and Iloke Stephen belong to a group of cultist and professional political thugs. They claimed their services were engaged by one Hon. BomaGoodHead who procured two AK47 rifles and commissioned his driver, one Iryo to convey the weapons in his black Toyota Prado jeep and handed same to the suspects at Degema.

“The suspects were responsible for several armed attacks that took place during the elections in places like Abonnema, Emuoha, Elele, Eteche and Omoku where a police officer was gruesomely killed. The rifles and 112 rounds of ammunition were recovered from them. Other members of the killer gang fled and detectives are on their trail.

“At this juncture, it is instructive to maintain that some security personnel were arrested for professional misconduct, actions, inactions, omission and commission that were detrimental to the electoral process of the 10th December, 2016 Rivers State parliamentary re-run elections. Some of them directly or indirectly connived with some politicians to scuttle the process. A high powered investigative panel is currently looking into this unacceptable professional misconduct.

“The IGP is irrevocably committed to ensuring that democratic ethos especially the master plan of credible election security becomes the acceptable norm in the country. The police will decisively deal with anybody irrespective of status or political affiliation who individually or collectively subverts the electoral process in Nigeria in accordance with the law.”
