Former speaker of the River State House of Assembly and the current Chief of Staff to Governor Sim Fubara, Edison Ehie, has disclosed that he was offered money to impeach the governor.

Ehie, however, disclosed that he refused to collect the money he was offered to impeach Fubara.

The Chief of Staff who did not disclose the identities of those who offered him money, spoke in Ahoada East area of Rivers State over the weekend.

According to Ehie: “They invited me, your son, to impeach the governor and I told them clearly, I was not interested.

“They gave me all the money that was hidden before, which I rejected. And because I refused, they conspired and declared me wanted.”

In 2023, the former Chief of Staff was declared wanted by the police in connection with the invasion of the State House of Assembly

In October 2023, an explosion rattled the state assembly building amidst reports of lawmakers attempting to impeach Fubara.

The Martin Amaewhule-led lawmakers had reportedly lodged criminal complaints against Ehie with the Rivers State Police Command regarding the invasion and arson of the Rivers State House of Assembly chambers by unidentified hoodlums
