Sounds of gunshots rented the air on Monday morning even as Police fired teargas canisters as some Rivers Lawmakers commenced the impeachment proceedings of Governor Siminalaye Fubara.

ENigeria News reports that the impeachment process of Governor Siminalaye Fubara which was cut short convened within the Rivers State House of Assembly Complex and presided upon by Speaker Martin Amaewhule along with 23 other lawmakers present.

The lawmakers also suspended the leader of the House, Edison Ehie, and some of their colleagues believed to be loyal to Governor Siminalaye Fubara.

ENigeria News reports that on Sunday Night, an explosion razed the legislative chambers inside the Assembly complex. Many opined that the idea was to frustrate the impeachment proceeding meant to take place this morning, but lawmakers refused to back down.

Following the gunshot and firing of teargas, people ran helter-skelter as policemen chased people, including workers whose offices are located within the area.

An eyewitness told ENigeria News that the lawmakers who could not conclude the business of the day were immediately seen at about 8:15 a.m. driving out of the Assembly with heavy security escorts.
