April 11 Governorship Election: Gunmen Kill 9 In Rivers State by lalasticlala(m): 7:00pm On Apr 04, 2015
At least nine persons have been killed and two others injured after gunmen stormed two communities in Rivers State in Nigeria’s south-south.

In a statement, the Police spokesman in Rivers State, Mr Ahmad Muhammad, said the armed men went on a shooting spree, in Obrikom and Obor communities.

Mr Muhammad said that six persons died immediately after the attack while three more victims died hours later.

According to him, the assailants also set ablaze the house of a local politician, Vincent Ogbagu, who is a state parliament candidate in the April 11 election.

Obrikom and Obor are neighbouring communities in Rivers State.

The attack came after a curfew imposed in Rivers State to contain unrest after the opposition disputed results from last weekend’s Presidential and National Assembly elections was lifted on Thursday.

The government imposed the curfew after thousands of opposition supporters descended on the electoral office in the state capital Port Harcourt on Sunday and Monday to demand a rerun of the vote.

They claimed no election was held in the state, but the electoral body said it had investigated their claims and found out that there were not enough reasons for it to consider the cancellation of the elections in the state.

Now that Dr Jonathan has been booted out of office, it is imperative that he curbs the excesses of his wife and her thug- Wike

The incoming administration of General Buhari will no longer tolerate this sort of impunity and disregard for human lives and property. The people of Rivers State want a free and fair election and they deserve this much.

GEJ was forced to accept the decision of the Nigerian electorate last weekend, we have commended him for this BUT he should not try the patience of the International community. He will face justice at the ICC if this wanton disregard for Nigerian lives continue.

Professor Jega has announced that card readers will be used all over the country on April 11th, PDP should use the remaining days to campaign instead of killing Nigerians

Chai, after all the apologies from the Governor.

Why can't these politicians adopt the philosophy of PGEJ (a true Democrat) which states clearly “any
ambition I have at any time is not worth the
blood of Nigerians.”

Amaechi will go down as the greatest disgrace from the southern part of Nigeria.

Even after spending funds meant to develop rivers people on bankrolling and campaining for a presidential candidate at the expense of his people. ...... He is still bent on setting the state on fire before heading to Abuja to assume his cabinet tole under Buhari

Is it not clear to him that Rivers people are averse to APC?

Is it not clear enough that APC is unpopular in the south south and south east?

What point is Amaechi trying to make by causing violence and killing Rivers people for a role he is not assuming himself?

After Wike is sworn in, and the probe begins and we figure out how much Amaechi spent on Buhari's campaign at the expense of Rivers people, then shall prosecute him adequately

And hopefully, Buhari who should be fighting corruption at that time cannot afford to have such criminal with stolen funds charges hanging around his neck within his cabinet.

Amaechi's case shall be a true test of Buhari's fight against corruption.
