There was pandemonium at the Rivers state seat of power earlier today with law enforcement agents storming the Government House ostensibly to disperse a crowd of supporters who have come to express solidarity with the governor, Rotimi Amaechi.

Panic reigned everywhere as policemen launched teargas canisters into Government House.

Meanwhile, unconfirmed reports coming from Rivers state indicate that soldiers attached to governor Rotimi Amaechi have reportedly been recalled and detained on orders from a perceived “higher authority.”

Sources say plans are underway to withdraw the Armoured Personnel Carriers (APC) protecting the Government House.

We shall continue to monitor events in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital, as they unfold.

See photos of the fracas that occurred earlier today:

  • The Police and the Army are all properties of the President. What ever he like to do with them is his business. But one thing for sure, the truth is always bitter. Rivers people should wake up for the defend of the state from some selfish individual. This pple did not truly love the development of the state but their own stomach and their family. What ever is the problem, is the pple of Rivers can solve the problem not someone from outside the state to solve it for them. Don’t allow what happened in Anambra and Plateau in Obasajo time to happen with the good pple of Rivers. Who knows, after this, what will be next? If all the south-south people supported GEJ and he did not win 2015, what will be of the Zone and the pple of that area in the next government? Is not a guarantee that GEJ will win 2015. God help Nigeria.
