Arrest Of Rivers Assembly Leader: Mbu’s Desperation Exposing Nigeria Police To Ridicule – Falana

Chidi-LloydLagos lawyer and Human Rights activist, Mr.Femi Falana (SAN), on Friday labelled the conduct of the Rivers State Police Commissioner, Mr. Joseph Mbu as embarrassing following the arrest of the Leader of the State House of Assembly, Mr. Chidi Lloyd for alleged double murder.

The police had accused Lloyd of using his car, a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), to run over and kill a police sergeant identified as Obadiah Urang and an alleged political opponent, Kingsley Ejeuo.

The Rivers police command also claimed that the lawmaker was arrested at the Air Force Base, Port Harcourt, where a private plane purportedly belonging to Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi was waiting to fly Lloyd out of the city in order to escape the arms of justice. But both the state government and the embattled lawmaker have denied the allegations.

Commenting on the incident, Falana in a statement said that Mbu has “continued to expose the Nigeria Police Force to ridicule.

“From charging the driver, who drove the legislator’s car with manslaughter, the CP decided to accuse the legislator of murder which cannot be sustained”, Falana said.



  1. What’s wrong with this man call falana? They say some body killed two human being like him and falana started condemning police that they arrested him, he should have wait for court of law to determine his fate.

  2. Mr Lawyer you guys have started,please this Lloyd man has done enough damage to the nation already, kindly assist the police to ensure He does not get away with the again, don’t make this about CP Mbu
