Rivers State Govt Demolishes State Assembly Complex

The political crisis rocking Rivers State took a new dimension with the state government, demolishing the Rivers State House of Assembly Complex Wednesday morning.

Bulldozers could be seen around the complex on Wednesday morning bringing down Assembly structure weeks after it recorded an explosion which destroyed parts of the assembly complex including the legislative chamber.

This demolition of the complex comes a day after a Rivers State High Court recognised Governor Siminalayi Fubara’s loyalist, Ehie as the Speaker of the House pending the determination of the substantial suit before it.

On Monday, the strained relationship between former Governor Nyesome Wike and Fubara worsened when 27 lawmakers in the state Assembly loyal to Wike out of 32 defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
