In a shocking revelation, the Arewa Youth Consultative Movement has brought to light a disturbing incident involving supporters of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, Nyesom Wike.

The group alleges that during a protest, these supporters attempted to detonate an explosive device near the prestigious Presidential Hotel in Rivers State. Their sinister motive? To intimidate federal lawmakers and gain support for their baseless call for a state of emergency.

The incident, which occurred on Tuesday, sent shockwaves through the area. However, on Wednesday, the Rivers State Government announced a breakthrough in the investigation, revealing that the suspect responsible for the explosive device had been apprehended.

The explosion, believed to be caused by dynamite, had occurred near the Presidential Hotel on the Aba Expressway, causing panic among residents and passersby.

According to the Arewa Youth group, the intention behind the detonation was not only to create pandemonium but also to demand an extension of tenure for local government chairmen who had already completed their mandated three-year term.

In a sinister twist, they had chosen the vicinity of the Presidential Hotel, where several senators and members of the House of Representatives were lodging, as the target for their device. However, their plan was foiled, as the explosive failed to achieve the desired effect.

The consequences of their actions were severe, with the detonator, Josiah Preye, suffering significant harm and injuries.

The Arewa Youth group, in a statement, called upon President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the Security Chiefs to ensure that the perpetrators and sponsors of this deadly blast face the full force of the law.

The statement further emphasized that the motive behind the explosive act was nothing short of an attempt to eliminate federal lawmakers and bolster their call for a state of emergency.

Additionally, the group condemned the protesters’ intention to incite chaos and demand an extension of tenure for local government chairmen.

The failed bombing in Port Harcourt has now turned the tables on Josiah Preye, the detonator, as karma catches up with him.

The group firmly believes that justice must prevail, and the security agencies should take immediate action to bring all those involved in this heinous act to face the consequences of their actions.
