Rivers unrest: Security operatives fired shots at me directly – Gov Fubara


Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State has accused security operatives in the state of firing shots at him on Monday morning.

He made the allegation while addressing the crowd after a face-off with security operatives on his way to the Rivers House of Assembly.

DAILY POST reports that an alleged move by some members of the state House of Assembly has been causing chaos in the state.

There was an explosion at the assembly complex on Sunday night, fueling allegations of a plot to remove the governor.

Addressing the crowd after visiting the complex, the governor vowed not to allege that the security operatives in the state have been compromised.

He said, “I know how you people are feeling, just take it easy. Great Rivers State youths. Great! When we are young, we have power.

But the difference with our own power is we will not misuse it. We woke up this morning to some very troubling news. We have gone to the Assembly to see for ourselves what has happened.

“On my way there, I was shot at directly by the (sic) operation, or whatever they call it. But it doesn’t matter; somebody will die one day whether you die inside your house or on the road. So my journey today, whatever it is that wants to happen, let it happen”.
