The RIVERS State Governor , Nyesom Wike , said on Saturday that the state government would inaugurate a panel to ensure that the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad personnel , who killed Dr . Ferry Gberegbe , a PDP agent in Khana Local Government Area of the state , was brought to justice . This is as the governor announced N 200m scholarship for the four children of the deceased, directing Gberegbe ’ s widow to open bank accounts for each of the four children . The governor spoke on Saturday in Port Harcourt when he led leaders in the state on a condolence visit to the family of the slain lecturer. He said, “ We will set up a judicial commission of inquiry to ensure that the culprits are brought to justice . It is unfortunate that F - SARS killed the PDP collation agent . The state government will offer scholarship to the four children left behind by the deceased. The mother of the children should open dedicated accounts for each of the children .
“ The state government will pay N 50 m to each of the four children for their education. ” The governor decried the gunshots at Gberegbe at the Khana collation centre , where he served as the PDP collation agent , adding that the fatal shots led to his death . He added , “ Instead of allowing people to choose who will represent and govern them , the security agencies didn ’ t allow that . Rather , they prefer to kill us . “ He died in the course of the defending the PDP . He died in the course of defending democracy . I want to assure the family that all those who killed him will not go free . ” The governor stated that the late Gberegbe remained committed to the PDP even on his sick - bed, maintaining that the deceased sent him a text message , saying that he would be very happy when he (Wike ) was declared winner of the election . Wike stated that the state government would also construct a house for the deceased’ s family and participate in his burial . Also speaking , the PDP National Chairman , Prince Uche Secondus , said the late lecturer was a victim of the calculated oppression of the oil rich states by the Army and the F - SARS. However , the state Police Public Relations Officer , Nnanmdi Omoni , said he would n ’ t be able to comment on who was responsible for Gberegbe ’s murder . Omoni stated out that the investigation on the matter would fish out the culprit .
