2023 Elections: Police Arrest Rivers Lawmaker, Chinyere Igwe With $500,000



Operatives of the Rivers State Police Command in the early hours of Friday, arrested a member of the House of Representatives, representing Port Harcourt Constituency II, Hon. Chinyere Igwe, allegedly in possession of $500,000 US Dollars on the eve of the 2023 general elections.

Igwe, who is a supporter of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, was arrested along Aba Road in Port Harcourt, the State capital.

We gathered that apart from the foreign currency allegedly in his possession, the Police also found a list of how the money will be distributed to beneficiaries in the 23 local government areas of the State as well as security agencies and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

His arrest came barely 72 hours after the building housing his two media outfits, the Wish FM and the Atlantic Television Network was rocked by explosion.
