Recall that Speaker of the pro-Wike faction of Rivers State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Martin Amaewhule, had on Thursday raised alarm that Governor Similanayi Fubara was plotting to demolish the official quarters of the lawmakers.

Speaking to journalists after the governor’s visit, Amaehwule said Fubara’s latest plot is to pull down the structures.

Amaehwule said members of the Assembly were stunned when the governor stormed the quarters.

He stated that Nigerians were watching day-by-day as the Governor, who is supposed to uphold the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and extant laws of the State, has become the “chief breaker of the law”.

A new twist on Friday indicated that court has restrained Amaewhule, Pro-Wike lawmakers From Sitting.

The development was contained in a circular obtained by MOUTHPIECE NGR.
