JUST IN: Chaos, teargas engulf Rivers assembly amid plot to impeach Fubara



The Rivers state house of assembly complex in Port Harcourt is currently a chaotic scene with teargas canisters puncturing the humid morning air.


The furore comes amid rumours of attempts to impeach Siminalayi Fubara, governor of the state.


Earlier, fire had gutted a section of the assembly complex and the main chamber.


On Monday, the house removed its leader, Edison Ehie, allegedly as part of the plot to impeach the governor.

A defiant Fubara breezed into the house of assembly complex on Monday morning after addressing youths outside government house.


Teargas fumes and water cannons from the police enveloped the governor’s convoy as he made his way to the complex.


“Let them come out and tell Rivers people the offence I have committed to warrant any impeachment,” the governor said outside the assembly complex.


 “Let me assure the people of Rivers that I will continue to ensure that you get the dividends of democracy. At the appropriate time, I will address the press.”


There are rumours of a rift between Fubara and Nyesom Wike, immediate past governor of the state and current minister of the federal capital territory (FCT).
