Abe1In a move reminiscent of the saga involving a member of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Michael Chinda, who was reportedly flown in an air ambulance to London following injuries he sustained to the head when his colleague and House Leader, Chidi Lloyd, pounced on him using the symbol of authority, the mace, a serving senator, who was reportedly shot with a rubber bullet and teargas canisters on Sunday morning by the Nigerian police in the state, has also being reportedly flown to London for further treatment, according to reliable sources.

Magnus Abe, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Petroleum (Downstream) and Senator representing Rivers South East Senatorial District, was first admitted on Sunday at a hospital in D line area of Port Harcourt, the state capital, but was later transferred to another hospital with better equipment to handle his situation when policemen disrupting a peaceful rally organized by the Save Rivers Movement and opposition members in the state, allegedly shot at him with teargas and rubber bullets.

Dr Mackay Anyanwu, who administered first aid to Senator Abe at Krisany Medical services, in D line where he was first rushed to, told newsmen that the senator was treated for traumatic shock but noted that further examination revealed that his chest was hit with an object that might have led to internal bleeding.

He said: “The patient was brought in a state of a shock, as evidenced by low blood pressure. He was restless and he couldn’t communicate or reason coherently. As a first aid, we treated him for traumatic shock because the implication of his state was that there was severe blood trauma and the amount of layers affected could not be detected immediately. This can only be done through haemorrhoid tests”.

Meanwhile, the police in the state have denied that its men shot the Senator, claiming that they rather used minimum force to disperse the rally at the state’s College of Arts and Sciences because they did not obtain police permit.
