The Rivers State Representative in the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Management Board, Tony Okocha, has denied any involvement in the abduction of some youths of Rumuigbo, in Obio-Akpor Local government Area of the state.

Some chiefs, youths, and women of Rumuigbo community had last week staged a protest against Okocha, accusing him of masterminding the alleged abduction of two of their sons, Bobby and Chamberlin Owhondah in Abuja.

But reacting to the allegations, Okocha, who is a former Chief of Staff to Rivers State Government House, said he is innocent of the allegations and was not part of the delegation of a faction of Rumuigbo indigenes, summoned by the Deputy Inspector General of Police in Abuja over a chieftaincy crisis, or signatory to the petition that led to the summons.

Okocha also issued a fourteen-day ultimatum to his accusers led by Professor Reginald Amadi to retract their comments and apologize to him or risk legal action. 

Reacting to the current political situation in Rivers State, Tony Okocha blamed a breach in communication and agreement, but sued for peace for the interest of Rivers people.
