According to Benson, the statement reads: “In as much as I have chosen to remain silent on the Political issues in Rivers State, let me make four simple statements”.

“As seen in trending videos in the media space today , the direct gun shots and tear-gassing on the person of the Governor of Rivers State, His Excellency, Simialayi Fubara, who is the Chief Security Officer of the state, was wrong. This is beyond politics, and I publicly condemn it”.

” As a former Minority leader of the Rivers State House of Assembly, I am particularly saddened by the destruction of our beloved House of Parliament, and a valuable state asset: this is unacceptable”.

“I believe that in the interest of the state, the Nigerian Police needs to have a deeper conversation with the Governor who is the current Chief Security Officer and the only Rivers man that currently enjoys constitutional immunity”.

“whatever our political differences, we must look for ways to resolve them without jeopardising the peace and security of our fellow citizens”he said.
