Police Seal Anambra House Of Assembly Building

By - - [ ]

The police, yesterday, sealed off the Anambra State House of Assembly complex till further notice. This is coming on the heels of the fracas at the entrance to the Assembly on Thursday.

A statement, yesterday, by the police spokesperson, Haruna Mohammed, said the sealing off was done by 6 pm on Thursday.

The police had earlier, on Thursday; tear-gassed lawmakers, staff and supporters of various factions of the state House of Assembly as tempers flared over the leadership tussle in the house.

The House became factionalised on Tuesday with the alleged impeachment of the speaker, Rita Maduagwu, by about 20 of the 30 members.

Ikem Uzoezie, who represents Aguata II Constituency, purportedly replaced her.

But, backed by some state officials, she later regained access into the chamber, and held a session with 11 members of the assembly.

She also described her impeachment as a “bundle of illegality”.

However, Mr Uzoezie, on Wednesday, said her impeachment was irrevocable.

Interestingly, both speakers adjourned the sitting of the house till Thursday.

But, in a bid to prevent outbreak of violence between both factions and their supporters, the police cordoned off the complex.
