365Daily – Amidst the chaos at the Rivers State House of Assembly over impeachment moves against the state governor, Siminalayi Fubara, the man at the eye of the storm has boasted that no one can remove him from office because he has not committed any offence.

In an emergency meeting on Monday, twenty-four out of 32 members of Rivers Assembly signed a notice to impeach the governor after impeaching and suspending the House Leader, Edison Ehie, who is a loyalist of Fubara.

Reacting in a video that has gone viral on social media, the Rivers Governor accused security agencies of compromise, while challenging the lawmakers to clearly state his offence.

While addressing his supporters, he promised to speak on the matter at the appropriate time.

Fubara lamented that operatives of the security agencies were compromised in the case, and accused them of shooting at him.

He added: ”It doesn’t matter, somebody will die one day. When people here ask who is this Fubara? He is that man that was killed for his struggle. I am not against anybody. I’m not planning anything against anybody that I don’t know where these things are coming from.

“Let it be put on record that whoever masterminded this is trying to shift… I heard some people gathered to do whatever. That is purely rubbish. You can’t sit when there is problem and say you are doing anything.

“What are you doing? I’m the chief security officer. I’m the head of the government… whatever action that is taken here is null and void. For our good people, I know you are prayerful. You have been praying for me. God will see us to the end.
