CCTV Capture Armed Thugs Who Stormed House Of Gov Fubara’s Top Ally At Night To Kill Him

Rt. Hon. Edison Ehie, a factional Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly aligned with Governor Siminalayi Fubara, reportedly narrowly escaped an assassination attempt late on Sunday night.

The alleged attackers, purportedly armed thugs accompanied by certain Policemen, including a senior Police officer in the State, were thwarted by the factional Speaker’s security details.

According to a statement signed by Ken Uchendu, legislative aide to Ehie, the incident unfolded at about 11 pm on Sunday, November 19, 2023. The attackers, led by SP. Irikefe London Owen and CSP Salihu Masalachi, targeted the private residence of Rt. Hon. Barr. Edison Ogerenye Ehie, DSSRS, with the intent to assassinate him and his family.

Uchendu’s statement read:

“At about 11pm on Sunday the 19th day of November, 2023, a group of armed thugs and rogue Police Officers led by one SP. Irikefe London Owen, a superintendent of Police attached to the CTU B 3 RSV and CSP Salihu Masalachi attacked the private residence of the Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Barr. Edison Ogerenye Ehie, DSSRS, fully armed with the intention to assassinate Mr. Speaker and his family.

“However, the thugs and rogue police officers led by the two above-named police officers in Rivers State were vehemently repelled in a gun battle by the official security details attached to the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Barr. Edison Ogerenye Ehie, DSSRS.

“It is imperative to note that the armed rogues and officers were properly and fully captured by CCTV footage in the residence, which shall be made available to all media houses, including the CNN, Aljazeera and other national and international media outlets for the records.

“In the same vein, the Speaker would be addressing a World Press conference on Monday the 20th of November, 2023.

“Let it be on record that Rivers people, boys, girls, women, men including the aged shall in our numbers occupy the streets stark naked in demonstration against the Nigerian Police and those sponsoring violence in Rivers State, no matter how highly placed, Rivers people will resist them.

“Finally, should there be a breakdown of Law and order in Rivers State, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu should hold the above-named Officers, the Rivers State Police Command and their sponsors in Rivers State responsible.”
