How Evans Bipi Instigtaed Tuesday’s Fight At House Of Assembly – Rivers Lawmaker

vlcsnap-2013-07-12-12h02m37s25-300x168A member of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Mrs. Victoria Nyeche, has shed more light on the events that led to the outbreak of violence in the hallowed chambers of the House on Tuesday.

Speaking on Channels Television’s breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily, Mrs. Nyeche traced the origin of the recent events to 6th of May when armed touts disrupted the Assembly’s procession.

Accordiong to her, the initial disruption of proceedings was what led to the request for more security operatives at Tuesday’s sitting.

She said: “Because of this security situation we felt that for us to reconvene; we needed to be assured of our security. So we agreed and the Clerk wrote a letter to the state command that we needed additional policemen”.

Narrating how she watched the show of shame from her office via a Close Circuit Television (CCTV) monitor, the lawmaker said that the problem started when about seven members were exchanging pleasantries on the floor of the house and suddenly, Mr Evans Bipi showed up from nowhere and started dealing Mr Chidi Llyod, who is the House leader, blows.

She added that the Speaker, Amachree Otelemaba, who was trying to intervene in the matter, was also hit by Mr Bipi.

“Evans grabbed the tripod and started hitting Lloyd with it,” she recalled.

She said it was when most of the lawmakers ran away for safety, that a faction stayed behind to have a ‘sitting’ that led to the purported impeachment of Hon. Amachree as Speaker.

She denounced the validity of the impeachment and supported her claim with the law which she quoted that “for the House to sit, you must have 11 members” and to “discuss the impeachment of the Speaker, you must have 22 members”.

Consequently, “So even if 10 members sit down in the chambers, at best they can be said to be having a talk show” she said.

  1. What is this womn saying, does she think we re blind and can’t see or is it that we are kids. The clips showed clearly as Lloyd attacked micheal chinda with the mace, woman are you sure your CCTV didnot pick the wrong scene.

    • My brother don’t mind her. We use to respect women before for their sincerity, but same cant be said now. People are just taking sides blaming one camp without asking for the day’s recordings from the CCTV in the assembly complex. Amaechi’s camp has the tape, and they won’t release it because they know it will change a lot of people’s perspective except APC that will always look for every little opportunity to attack the president and will condemn every of his actions, even the state of emergency he declared.

  2. This reports is highly biased. Why not write about the phone call make to the assistant pdp pro as well. Stop feeding populace with fake news pls

  3. Am not surprise to hear dis from a woman who claim to be honourable member of d river assembly to come on tv and started disgrace herself in d public. The report she gave was completely lies.

Ameachi going to d assembly cos d fight dt was y his ADC involve in d fight.
