Rivers impeachment crisis: Soldiers attached to Amaechi withdrawn and detained (REPORT, PHOTOS)
by Akan Ido
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.
