A fresh crisis has engulfed the Rivers State House of Assembly amidst rumours of an impending impeachment procedure against the state Governor Sim Fubara as the House on Monday removed its leader, Edison Ehie.
This is as the governor stormed the Assembly Complex while House members fled for safety as tear gas is fired outside the Complex.
A protest is also ongoing outside the Complex as of the time of filing this report.
The development comes hours after a fire broke out at the Assembly Complex on Sunday night.
It is unclear if the fire was connected with the political imbroglio but rumours of a rift between Fubara and his predecessor Nyesom Wike who is now Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister have been brewing for some time now.
