It was like a war movie at the Port Harcourt high court premises on Friday, 20 April 2018 as Rotimi Amaechi’s faction of APC thugs, guarded by the notorious Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS invaded the premises of the rivers state high court in a gestapo-raid style. The invaders stormed the court premises as early as 6 AM and locked up the gates to the premises to ensure courts did not sit on that day. Chanting war songs, they shot sporadically  into the air, attacked people and vandalised cars parked both within and around the court premises. For several hours, they had a field day, shooting and looting, while other security operatives looked on.
The APC thugs and Police damaged several courtrooms, ransacked the  court library , destroyed vehicles  and looted shops .  Hundreds of expended bullets littered the High Court Complex.
 Governor Wike said it is unfortunate that the Nigeria Police connived with leaders of the APC to close the courts and stop it from dispensing justice to Rivers  people.
He said: "This is very unfortunate.  Do not trivialize this invasion by saying it is just an attack by the APC on the judiciary.  This is a complete coup by the Nigerian Police and the APC to overthrow the Rivers State Government.
"We have said it before and we have been vindicated by this callous joint invasion of the Rivers State Judiciary".
He regretted that the Rivers State Police Commissioner decided to copy the Inspector General of Police in the exhibition of recklessness and lawlessness against an arm of Government carrying out its lawful duty.
"We cannot continue  to rely on the police to defend us. We must all stand up to defend democracy.  What has happened is a sign of what APC and Police have planned.
"APC Federal Government is not prepared for  election.  Therefore, they want to truncate the nation's democracy.  They are fomenting trouble to create an avenue  for the military to take over.
Governor Wike noted that it was the immediate past Rivers State Governor, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi who plotted the attack on the Judiciary on Thursday on behalf of the Federal Government , pointing out that the plot was executed by a Former Local Government Chairman already standing
trial for serial murder.
