Rivers lawmaker Chidi Llyod arrested for double murder

The Rivers State Police Command says that it has arrested the Leader of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Mr. Chidi Lloyd, for the alleged murder of Mr Kingsley Ejeuo and a police sergeant, Mr Urang Obadiah.
A statement issued by the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Ahmad Mohammad, said that “Mr. Lloyd was arrested on his way to join the state governor, Rotimi Amaechi, in his private jet in order to escape justice”.

The statement said Lloyd had last Monday, while pursuing Ejeuo, knocked down Obediah, who was trying to stop him, killed him and went ahead to crush the Volkswagen Passat car Ejeuo was driving in and also killed him.

Muhammad said the police initially thought the incident was a mere accident, which ought to have been manslaughter.

He, however, said the police had to change their mind when the Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mbu, directed the Area Commander, Metro Police, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Aliyu Garba, to visit Lloyd in his hospital bed and commiserate with him.

He said, conscious of what he did, Lloyd relocated to another hospital when facts emerged that he (Lloyd) drove a bullet proof vehicle, while pursuing the late Ejeuo and in the process knocked down Obediah, who died on the spot and moved ahead to smash Ejuo in his Passat car.

According to the PPRO, “Late Mr. Kingsley Ejeuo, who hailed from the same place with Hon. Chidi Lloyd is believed to be in the PDP camp led by Mr. Felix Obuah.”

He said: “While being guarded by four policemen in his hospital bed, he (Lloyd) sneaked out through the hospital’s back door and was driven in three tinted bullet-proof jeeps and escaped.”

Muhammad also said: “On receipt of the information of the escape of Chidi Lloyd, the Commissioner of Police, CP. Mbu J. Mbu, directed for a thorough search on all jeeps, while the CP himself personally drove to the Air Force base, where he met Governor Rotimi Amaechi and a private jet waiting for take off.

“As soon as he (the police commissioner) alighted, he saluted the governor, the governor ignored him and showered rain of abuses on the commissioner of police but the CP kept calm.

Unfortunately for Chidi Lloyd, the eagle-eyed police patrol vehicles intercepted him and the CP was informed immediately and he left the Air Force base to his office, ignoring the abuses from the governor. After waiting in vain for Chidi Lloyd’s arrival, Amaechi boarded his jet and took off in anger.”
It will be recalled that Lloyd, who presented himself to the Nigeria Police after a video clip of him hitting another lawmaker, Mr. Michael Chinda, with a mace on the head, went viral, was charged to court on a six-count charge, including attempted murder.

Lloyd was later granted bail in order to receive medical attention after sustaining injury during the July 9, 2013 free-for-all in the chambers of the Rivers State House of Assembly.

Biased and politically motivated statement in my opinion. 

The Police PRO should be fired immediately! Jeez! "he was arrested on his way to join Amaechi in his private jet to escape justic"; "As soon as the police commissioner alighted, he saluted the governor, the governor ignored him and showered rain of abuses on the commissioner of police but the CP kept calm"! wow! coming from a Public Relations Officer?!

I am no supporter of Amaechi or Lloyd, but the police statement is shameful.


  1. its controversial, anyway its politics

  2. Harassment of political enemies have started.

  3. Lloyd is a glorified tout. If you watch the video of the house of assembly fracas where he was attacking his fellow lawmaker you'll know hes capable of killing. just saying
