Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara claims that certain individuals he referred to as “compromised police officers” attempted to kill him.

During his Monday, October 30, 2023, speech to hundreds of young people at the Government House entrance, Fubara disclosed this information.


Justify Your Actions

He said that while he was there to evaluate the damage caused by the bombing of the State House of Assembly complex by some thugs, some police officers shot live bullets at him with the purpose to murder him.

Meanwhile, the governor has asked the 24 state lawmakers that commenced a process to impeach him to show justification for their actions.


He described as null and void the attempt to impeach him by the lawmakers, adding that it is an illegal legislative action.

“Let it be on record; whoever masterminded the attack at the assembly is trying to divert attention. If Siminalayi Fubara is impeached, I won’t be the first, nor will I be the last.

“But what is important is that any attempt that is not justified will be resisted.
