The Senator representing Rivers Central Senatorial district, Senator Magnus Abbe, has been shot at by the police in Rivers State.
The Senator who was shot at, at close range with rubber bullet is currently receiving treatments at an undisclosed hospital in Port Harcourt, having sustained serious injuries.
The police had gone to disperse a pro-Amaechi rally organised by the Save Rivers Movement, which held at the Rivers State College of Education, Rumuola, in Rivers State, at about 9am.
The Senator had gone to inquire why the police would disperse the rally that was very peaceful.
Instead, of giving reasons for their actions, the police shot at the Senator at close range, using rubber bullets which hit him around the chest area, leaving him critically injured.
The Senator is receiving treatment at a hospital in Port Harcourt.
