Heavy rainfall on Monday, presence of fully-armed policemen and warning by Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, prevented the #RevolutionNow protest in Rivers.

As early as 6am, policemen took over the main gate of the popular Isaac Boro Park in Mile One, Diobu, Port Harcourt, which is the usual take-off point for most protests in Rivers.

Shortly after the policemen’s arrival, the downpour started, thereby forcing all the policemen to move into the six Toyota Hilux patrol vans parked under the flyover, directly opposite the Isaac Boro Park.

Movements round Port Harcourt and its environs by reporters revealed that there was no #RevolutionNow protests anywhere in Rivers.

Wike, in a statement on Sunday by his Special Assistant on Electronic Media, Simeon Nwakaudu, warned the organisers of the protest to steer clear of Rivers state.

He threatened that whoever flouted his warning should be arrested and prosecuted by the security agencies.
