The political crisis in Rivers State, South-South Nigeria, is assuming a more dangerous dimension by the day.

Information reaching News Express has it that Senator Magnus Abe, a staunch supporter of embattled Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, was shot this morning during a rally in Obio Akpor by the Save Rivers Group.

The state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) claims that he was shot with a rubber bullet by the police but News Express could not immediately confirm this.

“He was first unconscious after the shooting but we thank God that he has been revived. We understand that he has internal bleeding. He is presently receiving treatment in a hospital in Port Harcourt,” Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, Senior Special Aide on Media and Public Affairs to the State Chairman of APC, Dr. Davies Ikanya, told News Express.

Eze would not divulge further details, saying that the party would soon issue a statement on the issue.

The incident comes barely one week after the bombing, last Monday, of the High Court in Ahoada and razing of the High Chief Magistrate’s Court in Okehi, both in Rivers State – acts which the Nigerian bar Association has attributed to politics and given the federal government one month to probe.

The political atmosphere in Rivers State has been charged for several months as a result of the quarrel between Governor Amaechi and President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife patience. The situation worsened following the defection, last November 26, of Amaechi and his loyalists from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to APC.
