The massive purge of the security apparatus has the dangerous potential of not only destabilizing the State, but the machinations will inevitably leave Amaechi expose, as a potential assassination target.

Huhuonline.com has learnt from close sources to the President that the Inspector General of Police has been ordered to fine-tune plans to transfer all police officers from Port Harcourt, including those attached to the Governor. The move comes against the backdrop of increasing clamors for the removal of the State Police Commissioner, Joseph Mbu for his role in the unfolding and never-ending Rivers crisis. With no signs of compromise, it appears the Presidency is bent on getting rid of Amaechi as the crisis between Amaechi and known loyalists of President Goodluck Jonathan takes another turn for the worse.
