Siminalayi Fubara, governor of Rivers, says he is ready to die over the political crisis in the state, hours after fire engulfed a section of the house of assembly in Port Harcourt.

Speaking on Monday when he visited the burnt complex, the Rivers governor alleged that security operatives have been compromised.

The Rivers governor said he is not against anyone, adding that he does not know the source of the political crisis in the state.

“From what I have seen, the security has been compromised,” he said.

“They were shooting at me, directly. But it does not matter. Somebody will die. I want to die so when people hear Fubara, they will say, who is this Fubara, he is that man who was killed that time over a struggle.

“I’m not against anybody. I’m not planning anything against anybody but I don’t know where all these things are coming from.

“Let it be put on record, whoever masterminded this thing (referring to the fire incident) is trying to shift…

“I heard some people gathered here to do whatever. That is purely rubbish.”

On Sunday, a section of the Rivers house of assembly was engulfed by fire.

The incident is coming amid the rumour that the state assembly is planning to impeach Fubara.

At the plenary on Monday, the Rivers assembly led by Martin Amaewhule, the speaker, removed Ehie Edison, the house leader.

There was chaos at the assembly when security operatives fired teargas canisters — an incident that made some of the lawmakers to leave the assembly complex.
