Governor Nyesome Wike has offered N50million naira each to the four children of late Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) agent Dr Frank Gberegbe allegedly shot dead by F-SARS during the general elections in Rivers State.
Governor Wike who made this kind gesture when he paid a condolence visit to the family house of the late Dr Gberegbe, said the money will be used for their education, as he urged the mother of the children Mrs Gberegbe to open a dedicated account for this purpose. The funds will be used for the children’s education, up to the University level.
Wike who was in the company of PDP National Chairman Prince Uche Secondus, and some members of the party, said:
“The Late Dr Ferry Gberegbe remained committed to the PDP even on his sick-bed. He sent me a text message saying that he would very happy when I’m declared the winner of the election.
He died in the course of the defending the PDP. He died in the course of defending democracy. I want to assure the family that all those who killed him will not go free.
It is most unfortunate that the young man was shot dead by F-SARs led by Akin Fakorede in an attempt to cart away election results.
Instead of us to allow people to choose who will represent and govern them, the security agencies will not allow that. Rather they prefer to kill us.
The State Government will offer a scholarship to the four young children left behind by the deceased. The Mother of the children should open a dedicated account for each of the children. The State Government will pay N50million to each of the four children for their education.
We will set up a Judicial Commission of Inquiry to ensure that the culprits are brought to Justice. It is unfortunate that F-SARs killed the PDP Collation Agent.” he said.
