Protesting youths in Rivers State have pulled down the effigy of the former governor of Rivers State, now the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Chief Nyesom Wike.

The angry youths also pulled down billboards and banners that had the image of Wike and the outgone Chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, Bar George Ariolu.

The effigy and billboards destroyed are all within the premises of the Obio/Akpor LGA in Port Harcourt.

In a video posted on a platform while the protest was on, three youths were seen struggling to drag the statue down.

However, some more of the protesters who trooped into the secretariat joined force and pulled the effigy from its base, stating that the minister is no longer needed there.
