The political crisis rocking Rivers State,south/south Nigeria, took a turn for the worse on Wednesday, with thousands of youths under the auspices of the Rivers Peoples Assembly, a mass civil society movement,took to the streets of Port Harcourt ,the state capital demanding the resignation of Governor Chibuike Amaechi.

Security was unusualy tight around the Government House in the old GRA area of Port Harcourt as Anti-Terror Squad of the Nigeria Police with several Armoured Personnel Carriers deployed to ensure that the anti-Amaechi protesters do not cause a breach of the peace or attempt to enter the Government House.

The protesters ,most of whom are wearing T-shirts with anti-Amaechi slogans also carried banners and placards calling on the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) to probe all financial dealings in the state under Amaechi’s watch.

One female protester told reporters365 that she wants to know the true story behind the state’s two aircrafts the Dr. Peter Odili Administration left behind. She also wants Amaechi to clear the puzzle surrounding the registration of the state aircraft which Aviation authorities say illegal.

Meanwhile , reports reaching reporters365 indicate that Governor Amaechi’s supporters are planning a counter protest to show
that he is as unpopular as he is being made to appear.
