Tension Rises in PortHarcourt as Ex-Militants’ Plot Against Amaechi
Indications have emerged that the peace currently being felt in the city of Port Harcourt may be disrupted today as suspected ex-militants have allegedly perfected plans to storm the city in a protest against Governor Chibuike Amaechi.
Revealing the alleged plan, a top government functionary, who did not wish to be named, said the planners were working to create a pretext for the declaration of a state of emergency in the state.
He said further that the plan to disrupt the peace of Port Harcourt today (Tuesday) is sequel to previous violent disruption of events organized by the pro-Amaechi Save Rivers Movement (SRM) in the last few weeks by both policemen and ex-militants in Port Harcourt and Bori.
It would be recalled that demonstrators, mainly ex-militants, staged a mass protest in Port Harcourt last year and blocked the entrances to Government House, and prevented some senators who had visited the governor from leaving.
He, however, expressed grave concerns that the anti-government protests in the state capital might escalate into fiery street battles between the anti-Amaechi demonstrators and supporters of the governor.
Meanwhile, the Council of Orashi Ethnic Nationality (COEN) has demanded an apology from Amaechi and the people of Ikwerre Ethnic Nationality for recommending Chief Nyesom Wike as minister in Nigeria.
It described Wike as not only a clog in Rivers wheel of progress but a selfish and mischievous child whose quest for power has turned him into a vessel for the destruction of the people and hijacking of their resources.
