The Consolidation of the New Rivers Vision Campaign Council has reacted to rumurs that the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Sir Siminalayi Fubara has been arrested.
Spokesman of the Campaign Council, Chief Ogbonna Nwuke said in a statement that there is no substance in claims that Sim has been arrested by any security.
“Our attention has been drawn to claims that Sir Siminalayi Fubara has been picked up by security operatives.
“It is baffling that some jobbers, spin doctors and never-do-wells are intent on misleading public opinion through the spread of bare-faced lies.
‘What they have dropped on the social media, are tissues of malicious lies. Note that the mass media is silent on a tale that obviously lacks facts and credibility.
“For the avoidance of doubt, there is no truth in these worthless claims. They are lies cooked in hell and served by agents of darkness who have nothing to offer.
“It is on record that Sim has a judgment in his favour against the EFCC. That judgment has asked the anti-graft agencies to pay damages to the flagbearer of the PDP for maligning his image.
“There is no evidence that the court decision has been overturned. Besides, Sim is busy going about his normal business as a citizen and a gubernatorial candidate of the PDP in Rivers State.
“No amount of falsehood will change the truth. The truth is that Sim is a free man, who is free under our laws as a noble Rivers son, a hard-nosed professional and a politician to participate in free and fair elections organised in this State.
“Rumour mongering has never won any election. We urge those who are behind these unfounded rumors to tell Rivers people what their preferred candidates will do instead wasting the valuable time of Rivers people.
