Fubara holds security meeting amid Rivers LG crisis

Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State, on Tuesday, convened a high-level security council meeting with heads of security agencies.

The security meeting, which took place at the Government House in Port Harcourt, Rivers state capital, was in response to the raging political tension in the state following the expiration of the tenure of the local government chairmen in the state.

The closed-door session focused on recent disturbances at local government secretariats and the overall security situation in the state.

Briefing newsmen after the closed-door meeting, Fubara said the meeting with the security chiefs was to devise effective strategies to prevent further invasions of local government offices.

The governor added that one of the agenda of the meeting was to ensure the stability and continuity of governmental functions across the state.

Fubara, therefore, warned the immediate past council chairmen against planning to unlawfully return to their previous positions.

He stated; “It is crucial that we respect the rule of law and the democratic transitions that uphold our governance structures.”

Fubara raised the alarm over an alleged plot by his political adversaries to target and arrest his supporters, promising to safeguard all residents of the state and their properties.

He added, “Anyone attempting to make such arrests will have to confront me directly.”
