Rivers gov’t asks police to investigate invasion of Maeba’s home by thugs


The Rivers State Government has requested assistance from relevant security agencies in determining what happened in the reported attack on Senator Lee Maeba, claiming that some politicians are staging high-level melodrama to cover up tracks.

Chris Finebone, the Commissioner for Information and Communications, in a statement, called on Maeba to aid security agents in unraveling the motives behind the attack on his home.

Suspected thugs had on Thursday attacked the house of Maeba, the chairman of the Presidential Campaign Council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State on Thursday morning.

Maeba while speaking to journalists, alleged the thugs were sent by the Rivers State Government.

However, Finebone said Maeba should aid security agencies in unravelling the purported attack on his house and those behind it.

“This makes it obvious that Senator Maeba should help security agencies unravel the purported attack on his house and those behind it. It is not enough to blame such an attack on ‘either government or some quarters.’ He should try and remember exactly whom the caller said sent him.”

Finebone further assured that the Rivers State Government would continue to work with security agencies and render all possible assistance to ensure the safety of life and property in the state.
