Chris Finebone, the state Commissioner for Information and Communication, stated this in response to a trending social media post claiming that Wike’s son was shot dead in the United States over the governor’s alleged activities in the recently concluded Rivers State Presidential and National Assembly elections.


Our correspondent saw a photo of the governor’s son in a convocation gown at his graduation from a UK university last year, flanked by Wike, his wife Justice Suzette, and their daughter, posing.

However, Finebone stated in a statement titled ‘Yet again, another lie’ sent to newsmen in Port Harcourt on Wednesday that the governor does not have a son or any child in the United States.

He described the post as the work of “wicked people” bent on blackmailing and tarnishing the image of Rivers State Governor, and urged members of the public to disregard it.

“This is a big lie by evil people,” the statement said in part. To be clear, Gov. Nyesom Wike has no son or child in the United States. The governor’s children are safe and doing well where they are, thanks to God’s special grace.

This satanic rumour is yet another concoction concocted by evil people in their insidious quest to blackmail and tarnish Gov. Wike’s image. This cheap blackmail contains absolutely no truth.

“The general public should disregard it and toss it into the garbage can where it belongs.”
