Rivers State Crisis: Hon. Chidi Lloyd Remanded In Police Custody

The police in Port Harcourt Wednesday finally arraigned embattled Majority Leader of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Chidi Lloyd, for attempted murder of his colleague, Michael Chindah.
But hopes of the lawmaker  regaining his freedom after more than one week in detention were dashed, as the court could not rule on his bail application following arguments on appearances.
Lloyd was taken to court by the police, limping and had to be aided by two persons to ascend the stairs to the second floor of the court building the court of the trial judge, Justice L.L. Nyorde, is situated.
Justice Nyordee adjourned the case until August 6 for ruling on appearances.
With the ruling, Lloyd was remanded in custody, leaving scores of his supporters, who had thronged the court hoping for his bail, disappointed.
