Though Nsirim did not mention names, he pointed out that those behind the plot were citizens of the state residing in Abuja.
He claimed the plotters were trying to force the declaration of a state of emergency by causing a breakdown of law and order in Rivers.

Nsirim stated that the Rivers state government was doing to protect the state from COVID-19 but complained that instead of supporting the state’s efforts to check COVID-19, Abuja politicians were busy looking for a way to declare state of emergency in Rivers because they want to acquire power.
