The governor’s spokesman, Simeon Nwakaudu, said the attack was carried out by operatives of the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) and soldiers of the Nigerian army attached to minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.
This led to Wike claiming that Amaechi wanted to get him killed.
A video has now emerged of the melee between security operatives of the two bigwigs, a scene which lasted for about 30 minutes.
