Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said some retired military generals in the country threatened to use their CIA contacts to deal with him if he did not do their bidding.
The Central Intelligence Agency of America (CIA) is the US intelligence service tasked with gathering, processing, and analyzing national security information from around the world, primarily through the use of human intelligence (HUMINT) and performing covert actions
Speaking in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital, on Wednesday, Wike described as unfortunate the inability of those retired generals to use their contacts to solve the Boko Haram insurgency.
The governor spoke while flagging off internal road networks at Igwurita, Rivers.
â€œSome people threatened that they are former generals, they are close to the CIA in America and they can deal with us. I said listen, no problem. If you are close to America CIA , why donâ€™t you use it to solve Boko Haram problem. Is it on my body (me) youâ€™ll use it? Nigeria has a serious problem and you are close to CIA, you know them as former generals, why not use that contact and solve Nigeriaâ€™s problem?
â€œYou want to use it to threaten me? Who are you that I should come and do your bidding? I say no to that. I will do the bidding of Nigerians, not the bidding of few people who believe that if they are not there, it should be their children.
â€œNo other child should come up outside theirs. I will not do that. So, all of us, prepare because a day shall come and Rivers State shall take a decision on what to do.â€
