The Ijaw leaders urged Tinubu to stop Wike and his loyalists over their purported moves aimed at sacking Fubara as Rivers state governor.

This is as the INC condemned what it labelled as open support by security agencies of the state lawmakers loyal to Wike, whom they gave protection to hold a sitting against a subsisting court order requiring all parties to maintain the status quo and to take no official actions until further notice.

INC, in a statement signed by its president, Prof Benjamin Okaba, on Monday, December 11, said it was curious that despite previous interventions of Tinubu and other critical stakeholders, Wike was bent on ensuring the impeachment of Fubara.

“Mr President, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, we implore you once again to call Mr Wike and those Federal Government agencies and agents who are putting Rivers State at risk of anarchy, to order. Such elements are inimical to the stability of Nigeria sooner or later,” Okaba said.
