“The Martin Amaewhule-led faction of the Rivers State House of Assembly are in a desperate move to upturn the judgement.

“We have it on good authority of their efforts towards ensuring that they use the court through every means available to get reinstated”, Kadiri stated.

In a statement on Tuesday, the group said the alleged plot to upturn the High Court ruling portends a grave danger for democracy in Rivers state and Nigeria.

“This group of former lawmakers, with the backing of some forces in Abuja, have been approaching the Appeal Court to upturn the ruling of the Rivers State High Court restraining the 25 defendants from “meeting/ sitting at the auditorium of the House of Assembly Quarters located at off Aba Road, Port Harcourt, or any other place whatsoever to purport to carry out the legislative business of the Rivers State House of Assembly.

“They have bragged about control of the judiciary by their patron in Abuja and that the ruling of the Rivers State High Court will be upturned, the group stated.

However, president of the group has cautioned that “Any attempt at compromising the Justices of the Appeal Court is a coup on democracy.

“Those whose actions and inaction have contributed to the political impasse in Rivers State are enemies of democracy. If this anomaly is allowed in Rivers State, it can happen in any state in the country. The implication would be the end of democracy or any semblance of democracy in Nigeria.” Kadiri warned.
