There was chaos at the Plateau State House of Assembly in the early hours of today as thugs gained access to the Assembly complex to wreak havoc and attempt to remove members who were already sitted in the House.

Security operatives were taken by surprise when some unknown persons made their way through the back of the House to stop the embattled Speaker, Abok Ayuba, and some members of the House from continuing with any proceedings which led to a response and clash with youths who were protesting outside the complex in support of the Speaker.

The scuffle which led to damaging of doors and windows, was brought to normalcy through the timely response of the security personnel led by the Commissioner of Police in the State, Edward Egbuka, and State Commandant NSCDC, Alexander Barunde.

However, roads leading to the Plateau State House of Assembly were barricaded as youths bearing various placards protested in support of embattled Speaker Abok Ayuba who was purportedly impeached last week Thursday.

Recent reports has also shown Ayuba in a video as he sat with other members calling for restoration of legal process and proceedings in the house and advocated for the intervention of democratic stakeholders, and the President Federal Republic of Nigeria.
