Port Harcourt — The leader of Rivers State house of Assembly, Hon Chidi Lloyd has been arrested by the police for the murder of a police sergeant, Urang Obediah, his kinsmen and a strong member of PDP, Kingsley Ejeuo.
A statement issued by Rivers State police public relation officer, Almed Muhammed, said the leader of the Assembly on 30th of December, 2013 while driving on his bulletproof jeep at Emuoha knocked down the police sergeant. He also said the police sergeant died at the spot.
"Initially the police thought it was an accident which ought to be a man slaughter. The commissioner of police directed ACP Aliyu Garba , the area commander of metro, to visit him in his hospital bed and commiserate with him. But conscious of what he did, Lloyd relocated to another hospital. When facts emerged that Lloyd drove a bulletproof car while perusing Ejeuo who he crushed to death, he escaped through the hospital's back door" the statement stated.
The police image maker pointed out that late Ejeuo was Lloyd's political rival and a strong supporter of Felix Obuah lead PDP in the State.
He said the Assembly leader was arrested at the Air force base Port Harcourt while trying to escape in governor Amaechi's chartered jet.
