Protesters, Thugs storm Plateau State house of Assembly.
Written by News Room on November 2, 2021
Protesters and thugs on Monday stormed the Plateau State House of Assembly complex in what appears to be a new twist to the crisis in the Assembly.
Both groups occupied the gate of the Assembly complex in Jos, chanting solidarity songs and displaying placards while 13 lawmakers led by the impeached Speaker, Ayuba Bok, were in the chambers.
While the protest was ongoing outside the complex, some thugs gained access into the complex through the back entrance, smashing the entrance door to the chambers.
On the other hand, the group outside the complex confronted the invaders to protect the members in the chambers, a situation that led to pandemonium.
It took the intervention of security operatives before normalcy was later restored at the assembly complex.
The Commissioner of Police in Plateau, Edward Egbuka, who was at the scene in the company of some police officers, also met with members of the assembly.
