The factional Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Edison Ehie, said he has been under a series of attacks for resisting the impeachment of the governor Siminalayi Fubara of the state by some lawmakers.…CONTINUE READING
Ehie, who is representing Ahoada East Constituency two, at the state assembly, disclosed that since his emergence as the speaker of the state assembly, following the crisis that rocked the legislative arm of the state, he has been under attacks.
You may recall that the lawmaker had raised the alarm that his home was allegedly attacked by armed men in police uniform on Sunday night, although the Commissioner of Police in the state, Olatunji Disu, had denied.
But addressing journalists in Port Harcourt, on Monday, Ehie, insisted that his home was attacked by Policemen, adding that the attack was a result of his stance with the governor of the state.
Ehie said, “Yesterday at about past 11 pm, after engagements, I moved upstairs and we had put the children to bed and I was interacting with my wife when we got alerted by the security attached to me that there was an attempted invasion by men in Mufti and some in uniform and I quickly got up from the room and came downstairs.
“Not too long, we started hearing the noise of the attempt by these security men in their Hilux vehicles to forcefully gain entrance to this residence, but they were being repelled by the security personnel.
“To our greatest surprise, these security operatives led by one SP Irefeike London and DSP Kasarachi ordered their men and started shooting sporadically. In fact, you can confirm from the neighbours in this vicinity that nobody could sleep last night. But to the glory of God the security operative ably resisted them.
Ehie, noted that the attack was connected to the political crisis in the state, adding that he would remain focused and fearless on his stance.
“For whatever reason which of course we all know is connected to the political upheavals in the state, they do not care about people’s family they now attack because obviously the plan was to forcefully enter into my residence, shoot and maybe kill everybody.
“All these started after what happened on the 30th of October when some self-serving lawmakers who are elected to represent their constituencies and ensure dividends of democracy, make laws including oversight functions, attempted in a Macavilian way to impeach the governor elected to represent millions of Rivers People. That is a joke taken too far, for goodness sake.
“And since that day because we stood behind the governor to say evil cannot reign over good in Rivers State, I have come under attacks threats, especially after I was elected speaker of the 10th Rivers House of Assembly.
“I and my family have been under threats, false allegations have suddenly started springing up against me, and some of our supporters who are on the side and part of justice,” He added
