The People’s Democratic Party, Rivers State chapter has called for a panel of investigation into the killing of a lecturer with the state polytechnic by alleged Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS) led by Mr Akin Fakorede in the state.
The party pointed out that Dr Ferry Gberegbe, a senior lecturer at Ken Saro-Wiwa Polytechnic who was PDP Khana collation agent, was shot by operatives of F-SARS on March 9, 2019 at Khana Local Government Area.
However, on Saturday at a press conference in Port Harcourt, the state PDP chairman, Mr Felix Obuah, noted that two other persons who were injured by the gunshot from the alleged police officers were receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital in the state.
Obuah stated the need for probe into the killing of the father of four (Ferry), so as to bring the perpetrators to book.
He said: “We wish to call on the Acting Inspector General of Police, Mr. Abubakar Mohammed Adamuto to institute a panel to probe the brazen involvement of the Rivers State Commander of F-SARS, Mr. Akin Fakorode and his gang of police operatives in the organized invasion of polling units, collation centers, abduction of electoral officers and the shooting and killing of innocent persons during the general elections at Khana, Gokana, Ikwerre, Eleme, Tai, Oyigbo and Ogu/Bolo Local Governments of the State.
“As we speak, one of the victims of Akin Fakorode’s assault, Dr. Ferry Gberegbe, a senior lecturer at the Ken Saro Wiwa Polytechnic has died of gunshot wounds, while Mr. Marvin Lezor Kpea-ue, Raymond Ledogo and several persons are presently battling with life-threatening injuries inflicted on them by Akin Fakorode and his murderous gang.
