Amaechi Has Lost Control Says Wike As Injured Lawmaker’s Prepared For Overseas Medical Treatment

Rivers State House of Assembly Crisis in PH 3The Minister of State for Education, Mr Nyesom Wike, said in Port Harcourt on Friday that Michael Chinda, the wounded legislator in Rivers, would be flown overseas for medical attention.

Chinda was wounded during a fight on the floor of the state assembly on July 8.

The minister told newsmen when he visited the victim in the hospital that the attack on Chinda was an act of brutality and man’s inhumanity to man.

The injury was inflicted on Chinda, (Obio/Akpor Constituency II in the state legislature) during the fracas.

“The law maker that was brutalised is now being flown overseas because of his critical condition.

“The person, who committed that crime was the same person who had to go to Government House clinic and laid on a bed to say that he was beaten up.

“What is important is for Nigerians to know that we will not be scared or be intimidated; we will do what we think is right within the law.

“We will make sure that Rivers people have the change which they had requested for”, the minister said.

He said that the State Government had lost control of affairs in the state.

“You do not need to go to any prophet or native doctor to know this”, he added.

Chinda was taken out of the hospital in an ambulance for onward journey abroad. (NAN)


  1. I hope the renegade legislator would not be treated abroad at tax payers expense for the injury he brought upon himselfself, by his unlawful act in attempting to overthrow a lawfully constituted authority (the Speaker of the House of Assembly). Coupists are known to meet with worst fate.

    To the Minister I say, 2015 is still very far away, and no one knows who would make it to the dream year of Nigerian politicians. Concentrate your efforts on solving the meriads of problems besetting the educational system in Nigeria, which has forced ASSU on strike and is responsible for the ever dwindling educational standards, as well as poor infrastructures in our primary, post primary and tertiary institutions across the Country. That should be of more concern to you than fanning the embbers of hostitilities in Rivers State.

  2. A legislator got injured and is being flown abroad on government expense,. Who knows this is part of allowances that should be paid to ASUU to call off strike will be spend here… When there was a country..

  3. Hon. Wike, I think its d Rivers people who are saying to u dat “we would never be intimidated” and we never asked for any change. If there is any1 who is a dictator and ruthless then its you and those in ur camp as for probing Chidi, I laugh at u bcus u don’t realise dat there exists also a video of dat same guy in company of Bipi assaulting Chidi lloyd with a Tripod stand which pre-empted him to retaliate when d police just stood watching, as for Chinda I don’t wish him dead however I wish he becomes Brain dead dat way he doesn’t get to ever step on a sleeping Lions tail.

  4. The Minister of State for Education, Mr Nyesom Wike, should concentrate on how 2 upgrade d Nigerian Educational sector which iz @ its worst position since independence. He should be remimded of his responsibilities instead of being a stooge 2 “Her Lordship” Patience Johnathan.
    ASUU av bn on strike & notin iz being done abt it, instead he had d guts 2 be speaking trash about Gov. Rotimi Amaechi. If a Honorable member cld think of impeachin a Speaker wit four other of his colleagues then his brains needs 2 be formatted. & I think dts what Hon. Chidi Lloyd did 2 him with d Mace.

  5. It ‎​ȋ̝̊̅ڪ very clear that Jonathan ‎​ȋ̝̊̅ڪ at wrk,but amaechi ‎​ȋ̝̊̅ڪ too rude T̶̲̥̅Ơ̴͡ the presidency.if those under him can respect and pay loyalty him,I Ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡.̮Ơ̴̴͡ ​​N̶̲̥̅̊Ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡ reason why he should not play same T̶̲̥̅Ơ̴͡ the president.a wrd ‎​ȋ̝̊̅ڪ enough for the wise

  6. Instead of encouraging the younger ones to embrace education,u guys feels that initiating them in thuggery and cultism will be the best for them so that they will die in the process while ur children and relations if at all u guyz hv are outside the shore of this country enjoying themselves.remember nemesis ………..
