PORT HARCOURT— A Rivers State High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, yesterday, adjourned till July 29, for judgment on the suit by Speaker, Rivers State House of Assembly, Mr. Otelemaba Amachree, challenging his invitation by the police  over his allegation of a  plot to assassinate Governor Chibuike Amaechi and some top government officials.

Counsel to the Police, Mr. Donald Dewigwe, SAN, had argued at the resumed hearinmg of the case that it was in order for the Police to invite the Speaker over the alleged plot to assassinate the governor of the state, stressing that he must appear to defend the allegation.

Dewigwe argued that there was no way the Police would not investigate the issue, adding that any attempt to stop the Police from carrying out its duty of investigation, particularly on the issue could create problems for the society.

Counsel to the applicant, Mr Emenike Ebete argued that the allegations levelled against his client, the Speaker, were unfounded, contending that there was no prima facie evidence before the court to compel his client to appear before the Police over the alleged plot to assassinate the governor and other key political figures in the state.
