Plateau State House of Assembly
Police in Plateau State have continued to occupy the State Assembly entrance, preventing lawmakers from gaining access to the premises to prevent breakdown of law and order.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Bartholomey Onyeka, said, during a press conference at the police state headquarters in Jos, that there was need to protect lives and property.
Crisis erupted at the Plateau State House of Assembly following the judgment of a State High Court ordering the reinstatement of the impeached Speaker of the House, Abok Ayuba.
The reinstated speaker had assumed office and presided over the House at a plenary attended by nine members of the state assembly.
