Politics Rivers Court bombing likely tied to Evans Bipi’s trial says State Government- Premium Times



The bombing of a High Court in Rivers state on Monday may not be unconnected with the trial of a state lawmaker, Evans Bipi, the Rivers State commissioner for information, Ibim Semenitari, has said.

Ms. Semenitari told PREMIUM TIMES the explosion at a court in Ahoada East Local Government Area, the second time in six months, may be an attempt to frustrate the trial of the controversial lawmaker.

“Well it is indeed tempting to suggest that it may not be unconnected with the fact that the case involving Mr. Evans Bipi the purported speaker of the group of 6 in the Rivers State House of Assembly was to be determined in the morning and in the night the Court premises was bombed,” Ms. Semenitari said.

“This is the second time that court is being bombed the night before a case involving Mr. Bipi is to be heard.”
