Jonathan vs Amaechi Latest: High Court orders police to vacate Rivers council

A Federal High Court in Port Harcourt has ordered the police to vacate Obior/Akpor council of Rivers State.

The court gave the directive on Monday morning.

The Speaker of the Rivers Assembly had accused the Federal Government of a ploy to declare a State of Emergency in Rivers, starting from the Obior/Akpor council.

The Assembly, loyal to the Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, suspended the council chairman and appointed a caretaker committee; while the Peoples Democratic Party Chairman, loyal to the presidency, condemned the suspension and instead suspended the state lawmakers.
