Reports suggest that the lawmakers had allegedly finalized plans to commence the impeachment proceedings against Governor Fubara and House Leader Ehie during today’s session.

The exact reasons behind this move remain undisclosed at this time.

However, sources indicate that tensions may be brewing between the governor and his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, who currently serves as the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister.

Following the incident, security reinforcements have been deployed to the assembly complex.

Over 17 security trucks and four Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs) are now stationed at the site, manned by more than 50 federal security personnel.

As investigations unfold, the people anxiously await more information regarding the motives behind the assault and the potential repercussions it may have on the political state of the region.

The authorities are urged to swiftly bring the perpetrators to justice and restore calm and order within the Rivers State House of Assembly.
