Video: Police fire teargas at Gov Fubara over impeachment plot


Policemen on Monday shot water cannon and teargas at the state governor, Siminalayi Fubara.

This is in the wake of the impeachment plot against the governor.

Fubara had stormed the Assembly complex with his supporters in the wake of moves by the lawmakers to carry out an impeachment motion against him.

He walked to the House of Assembly Complex guarded by his supporters and security aides as policemen in a water truck shot towards him, with sounds of teargas cannisters rending the air.

Fubara’s supporters could be heard saying “they are shooting at the governor”

Fubara later addressed journalists at the complex claiming that he was shot at.
