Police take over Ogun Assembly Complex

The Ogun lawmakers had a violent sitting on Tuesday.

Following the Tuesday fracas at the Ogun State House of Assembly, officers of the Nigeria Police Force have taken over the Assembly Complex.

No lawmaker was allowed into the complex, except the staffers who were screened before they were allowed into their various offices.

PREMIUM TIMES learnt that the state governor, Ibikunle Amosun, has invited the feuding lawmakers for a meeting.

Fourteen members of the 26-member Assembly on Tuesday suspended the speaker, Suraji Adekanbi, and three other principal officers in a violent sitting during which the mace of the assembly was destroyed.
