River State Crisis: How I Was Attacked – Hon. Chinda(Interview granted before he went into coma)

Hon Michael Chinda in Coma

Hon Michael Chinda, one of the five legislators opposed to Governor Amaechi who suffered several bruises during the fracas has spoken of his experience. Hon Michael Chinda said that ”Rivers state House of Assembly elected a new Speaker Hon. Evans Bipi and the old Hon. Daniel Amachree was impeached and everything concerning the enthronement of the new speaker was concluded. As we were about to leave the place, the governor broke into our chambers.

?Governor Rotimi Amaechi led the group. They came into the chambers and started beating everybody.?“For my case, I have to be very specific. I was about leaving; I know Chidi Lloyd, very close to me in the House. I was misled by my closeness with him. I never had any idea that he could be so brutal to use such a weapon on me.?“My colleagues rushed me to this Saint Patrick Hospital in the pool of blood and I have been here since yesterday.

?“If you look at my records from the very day we were inaugurated by the governor of Rivers State, I have never insulted the governor. I hold the office of the Governor of Rivers State in very high esteem, I didn’t even go close to the governor because we respect the governor until Chidi Lloyd and the policemen came and did what they did. Only God will judge. Why will I do that? Why will I insult the governor? I can never do that. If anybody said I did such a thing the person is not being fair to me. We formed a quorum, the normal number required to impeach a Speaker.”
