Court Orders Arrest of Fubara
Governor and Edison Ehie
A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has ordered the Nigerian Police Force to arrest the former factional Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, and newly inaugurated Chief of Staff to Rivers State Governor Siminalayi Fubara, Edison Ehie, and five others.

Justice Emeka Nwite, on Wednesday, January 31st, 2024, ordered the arrest, investigation, and trial of Fubara's Chief of Staff, Edison Ehie, Jinjiri Bala, Happy Benedict, Progress Joseph, Adokiye Oyagiri, and Chibuike Peter, who is also known as Rambo over the burning of the Rivers State House of Assembly Complex at the wee hours of the political rift between former Governor Nyesom Wike and Governor Fubara.

The order followed an ex parte application by the Inspector General of Police against the erstwhile factional speaker of the state assembly and the other suspects.

The application, which was filed by Senior Advocate of Nigeria Simon Lough, a Deputy Commissioner of Police, was hinged on sections 37, 113, 114, 84, and 184 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015, Section 35 of the Nigerian Constitution and 32 of the Police Act, 2020.

The IGP accused the defendants, said to be at large, of the offenses of conspiracy, arson, terrorism, and murder of a Superintendent of Police, Bako Agbashim, and five other police informants.

The five police informants in the Ahoada community of the state were identified as Charles Osu, Ogbonna Eja, Idaowuka Felix, Paul Victor Chibuogu, and Saturday Edi.
