The minister said: “Justice Karibi-Whyte, for me, was a father figure. He was an exemplary personality, a great advisor and I have the utmost respect for him.

“During his tenure as Pro-Chancellor of RSUST where he brought his astute disposition and intellect to bear, there was a remarkable turnaround in the quality of education and handling of affairs in the institution.

“He was also a key member of the State’s Economic Advisory Council when I was governor and my administration and Rivers State benefited richly from his wealth of experience and expertise.

“As a Justice of the Supreme Court, he was very upright, fearless, and upheld the rule of law.

According to the former soldier, a fellow soldier found his way into his house, stabbed his mum and raped her after he left for duty.

”Rape is a disgusting thing. When I was a soldier serving in 146 battalion. My mum visited me, brought foodstuffs, cooked all sorts of food and served my neighbours (soldiers).

At 6 pm, I left for my duty. My neighbour broke into the ceiling and gained entry into my apartment.

Stabbed my mum twice at the back and raped her. My mum was a mess and almost took her own life. I didn’t forgive myself until I left the army. When you plan of raping anyone, you plan to destroy them. Say No to Rape.” he tweeted.
