We’ve launched probe into security situation at Rivers assembly, say police



The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has disclosed that it has launched an investigation into the "security situation" at the Rivers state house of assembly complex.

In a statement on Monday, the police said it will take immediate action against those responsible for the chaos at the complex.

On Sunday, a section of the assembly complex was razed by fire.

There was tension at the complex on Monday when police officers allegedly fired teargas canisters and aimed water cannons at the convoy of Siminalayi Fubara, the state governor.

"We're aware of the security situation at the Rivers State House of Assembly Complex," the police said.

"We've launched a comprehensive investigation to uncover the circumstances and will take immediate actions against those responsible."

Earlier on Monday, Fubara alleged that security operatives have been compromised, while claiming that they shot at him at the assembly complex.

The Rivers governor said he is not against anyone, adding that he does not know the source of the political crisis in the state.
