There’s crisis in Rivers State, South South Nigeria. On Monday the state Assembly reportedly signed an impeachment notice on the state Governor Siminalaye Fubara.
In a session that was presided over by the Speaker, Rt Hon Martins Amaewhule and attended by a number of members, the Leader of the House, Hon Edison Ehie and those loyal to the governor were suspended.
It was gathered that the explosion that occurred in the Assembly on Sunday night was alleged to have been a ploy to stop the lawmakers from gaining access to the Assembly on Monday.
As early as 7 a.m., some lawmakers made their way into the House and immediately commenced plenary where they all signed the impeachment notice on the governor.
Meanwhile, the entire Moscow Road leading to the Rivers State House of Assembly has been barricaded by armed policemen.
