High Court Bombed In Rivers State
BEVERLY HILLS, CA, January 06, (THEWILL) - A High Court has been bombed in Ahoada East Local Government Area, Rivers State, according to reports from the oil rich state, located in the Niger Delta.
The bombing of the court where Justice Charles N.
Wali usually holds court, reportedly occurred on Monday morning a few hours before a politically charged suit against Hon Evans Bipi, a member of the Rivers State House of Assembly and leader of a group of 6 lawmakers, who has been unlawfully parading himself as the Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly.
Justice Wali had about a month ago ordered Bipi to stop parading himself as Speaker of the House as the tussle over control of the state government between loyalists of the Presidency and the Rivers State Governor, Mr.
Rotimi Amaechi, lingers with an end in sight.
No casualties have been reported over the bombing as at the time of filing this report.
