Tension Heightens As RSHA Faction Loyal To Martins Amaewhule Threatens To Violate Court Order

….Rivers People Mandate Demands Police Intervention to Maintain Peace

In a recent development, the Rivers People Mandate has brought to light the alleged plans of the faction led by former Speaker, Rt Hon Martins Amaewhule, to defy a standing court order. Despite a valid court directive restraining all parties involved in the Rivers State House of Assembly (RSHA) matters, Amaewhule and his cohorts are reportedly plotting to reconvene, risking contempt charges.

The situation is particularly concerning as it signifies a blatant disregard for the rule of law and the court’s authority. The court order, in place to maintain order and fairness pending the resolution of ongoing legal matters related to RSHA, is being challenged by Amaewhule’s faction.

Rivers People Mandate in a statement signed by its chairman Chief Thompson Ebifegha and Secretary Emmanuel Bekwele, issued a stern warning about the potential consequences of such actions.

Calling for intervention, the Rivers People Mandate has urged the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Olatunji Disu, and other security agencies to take decisive steps to prevent any unauthorized assembly. The organization emphasizes the need to uphold peace and order in the state, emphasizing that the court order was implemented for a reason and must be adhered to by all factions involved.


As the situation unfolds, the eyes of the public remain on the Rivers State House of Assembly, awaiting the response of law enforcement authorities to ensure the preservation of peace and adherence to the rule of law.
