Wike Vs. Fubara: “Wike Should Come And Kill All Of Us”, Protesters Shout

The political crisis in Rivers State over the alleged plot by the Rivers State House of Assembly to start an impeachment process against Governor Siminalayi Fubara boiled over Monday morning.

The Governor’s entourage was allegedly shot at, tear-gassed and sprayed with water at the premises of the Rivers State House of Assembly. The Governor was present.

In response, scores of angry people who accompanied Governor Fubara screamed continously: “They want to kill the Governor. They are shooting at the Governor. We are here with the Governor. Wike should come and kill all of us. Wike should come and kill us with the Governor. Fubara is our Governor. We voted for him.”

The political crisis in Rivers State became public on Sunday when a group of Rivers indigenes in the Diaspora alleged that there were forces within and outside the State bent on causing friction between the Governor and his predecessor/political father, FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike.

The allegation became a reality when on Sunday night, political hoodlums invaded the House of Assembly and set it ablaze in a bid to stop the Members of the Assembly from sitting, and thus, abort the alleged move to start an impeachment of Governor Fubara.

Monday morning when Fubara went to inspect the damage inflicted on the Assembly by the hoodlums, he was greeted with sporadic gunshots, tear gas and splashes of water. The incident forced those who accompanied him to point accusing fingers at Wike. They chanted his name, and asked him to “come and kill all of us.” They added:  “We are Ijaw, we no dey fear anybody.”

When Fubara addressed the people at the Government House, he said he had done nothing wrong, but would talk at the appropriate time.

It is not known what led to the plan to start a process to impeach the Governor. None has been made public. It is, also, not known what suddenly came between him and Wike who imposed him on the State. But, not a few people are shocked by this development as the impression is that it is Wike who still calls the shots at Government House Rivers. The Governor, literally, it is said “cannot drink water without taking an excuse from Wike.”
