Over a hundred hoodlums were said to have invaded the Kogi State House of Assembly, interrupting the general meeting, and assaulting lawmakers.
According to reports, that broke the news, said hoodlums attempted making their way in through the speaker’s entrance but were barred from entry by the speaker’s aides.
The hoodlums then climbed and forced their way through the gallery, chasing everyone seated with nobody to hold them, saying:
“What kind of rubbish sitting is this? All of you should vacate this chamber or we kill you.”
The lawmakers had reportedly taken to their heels, running out of the assembly complex under the watch of mobile policemen.
Journalists attending the session were also said to have run for their lives, scaling through the fence of the complex to escape the dangerous hoodlums.
However, the hoodlums were said to have cornered a lawmaker named Friday Sani, also known as Makama.
The hoodlums reportedly stripped him naked and beat him up as policemen watched on, unable to do anything.
Makama, who was suspended for six months for taking the assembly to court, was resuming to the plenary for the first time since his suspension.
Makama had been suspended for taking the assembly to court for giving extra-spending approval to the Kogi State governor Yahaya Bello when workers were being owed salaries.
The High Court had declared his suspension null and void, and he had returned to the plenary on Tuesday.
No doubt, that Makama was eventually rushed out of the plenary by his supporters, and is reported to have traveled out of the state.
Sources also claim he was rushed to the hospital.
Ahmed Umar, the Speaker of the Assembly who spoke to the press said the attack was an unfortunate event.
