Foreign experts to analyse alleged Wike’s leaked calls — Police


The police have invited some foreign specialists to assist with the forensic analysis of the leaked audio of Governor Nyesom Wike’s alleged phone calls during the legislative rerun election in Rivers State.

The experts were invited by the police as part of investigation into the alleged rigging of the election and the alleged threat to the lives of some electoral officers during the poll.

The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, explained on Wednesday that the foreign analysts would soon be in the country to assist with the ongoing investigation into the violence that rocked the poll during which two police officers, DSP Mohammed Alkali and his driver, Sgt. Peter Uchi, were beheaded and their heads thrown into a river.


Speaking when the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, paid him a visit at the Force Headquarters in Abuja, the IG stated that the experts would offer support in audio analysis of some leaked recordings during the election.

He noted that the two police officers were killed because they answered the call of duty and vowed that the Force would leave no stone unturned to ensure that those indicted for the murder were punished.
