Rivers State High Court Rules in Favor of Edison Ehie in Fundamental Rights Suit Against Nigerian Police Port Harcourt High Court Extends Restraining Order Against Police in Fubara's Chief of Staff Case Breaking: Embattled Factional Speaker of Rivers State Assembly, Ehie Edison Resigns Misleading Claims Surface Regarding Rivers State Assembly Speaker

In a recent judgment delivered by Hon. Justice S.H Aprioku of the Rivers State High Court, a significant ruling has been made in favour of Rt. Hon. Ehie Edison, Chief of Staff, Rivers State Government House, in a Fundamental Rights suit filed against the Nigerian Police.

The court heard arguments from both sides, with Counsel for the applicant, D.O. Okoro, SAN, and C.M. Dickson, Esq., representing the respondents.

The court rejected the preliminary objection raised on the issue of jurisdiction and restrained the respondents from arresting the applicant based on charges alleged to be politically motivated.

Furthermore, the judgment declared an injunction preventing harassment, intimidation, or detention of the applicant.

The judge also awarded costs amounting to One Hundred Thousand Naira (₦100,000) in favour of the applicant against the respondents.


Earlier this month, REPORT AFRIQUE reported that the Nigerian Police declared Ehie Edison, the Chief of Staff to Governor Fubara, as a wanted person.

The political situation in Rivers State has become tense since the fallout between Governor Fubara and his predecessor, Chief Wike, the FCT Minister.

This development has caused sharp division in the Rivers State House of Assembly, with the majority of the members on the side of former governor Wike.

It is worth noting that Edison Ehie previously resigned from his membership in the State House of Assembly. He was later appointed as the Chief of Staff to Governor Fubara after his resignation.
