Amaechi denies claims he was attacked by kidnapper’s, calls for regulation of social media

The former Governor of Rivers State was recently enmeshed in a heated exchange this morning after Bring Back Our Girls Campaign activist, Aisha Yesufu insisted that he fled after allegedly being attacked by bandits.

In an interview with Channels Television today, Rotimi Amaechi wondered why people are delibrately working to bring down the government. He said;

“This so-called social media, the earlier they start regulating it, the better.

“We either start regulating this or there are people who deliberately want to bring down the government, and I don’t know what they want to achieve by that, is it that the government can’t protect its own minister?”

“Most of these stories we hear are not true, they had earlier on said there was an attack on passengers on the same Rigasa, I had to tell NRC to make a rejoinder because there was none.”
