Special Assistant to the Rivers State Governor on New Media, Marshal Obuzor, was on Monday evening attacked and beaten by men of the Federal Special Anti Robbery Squad (F-SARS) in Port Harcourt.

Obuzor was flagged down around the Mandela car wash area in the GRA Axis of Port Harcourt, and on identifying himself, was dealt severe blows and machete drills.

Unconfirmed reports stated that his phone and car keys were also seized by the SARS operatives.

Bounce News gathered that the attack by the F-SARS on Obuzor might not be unconnected to his constant criticism of the Akin Fakorede led F-SARS in the state.

It took the intervention of the Commissioner for Special Duties, Emeka Onowu, who mobilized people to calm the situation and rescue the Governor’s aide, recovering his phones and car keys.


Obuzor is currently undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Port Harcourt.

Fakorode, has been at loggerheads with Governor Wike, for allegedly meddling in the 2016 rerun elections.

Requests for comments from the Rivers State Police command were not immediately responded to as the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Nnamdi Omoni’s phone was switched off.
