The escalating unrest indicates a rising tide of dissatisfaction or disagreement regarding Bola Tinubu’s alleged involvement in the crisis.

Rivers elders had previously attacked Tinubu for getting involved in the issue, saying that his choice was biassed in favour of Nyesom Wike, the former state governor and minister of the FCT.
