There were gunshots and firing of teargas within the Rivers State House of Assembly Complex on Monday as some lawmakers sat to begin an impeachment process on Governor Siminalayi Fubara.
About 23 lawmakers, including the Speaker, Martin Amaewhule, who presided over the sitting, resolved to begin the process.
The lawmakers also suspended the leader of the House, Edison Ehie, and some of their colleagues believed to be loyal to the governor.
Recall that there was an explosion at the assembly complex on Sunday night as the chamber was razed.
Lawmakers immediately after the sitting, were seen at about 8:15 am driving out of the Assembly with heavy security escorts.
Following the gunshot and firing of teargas, people ran helter-skelter as policemen chased people, including workers whose offices are located within the area.
