The Plateau State Police Command has sealed the State House of Assembly Complex.
According to Channels, this was done to forestall the breakdown of law and order following the reinstatement of former speaker Ayuba Abok by the state high court.
Officers of the state police command were at the assembly entrance early Wednesday barring anyone including staff from gaining access to the complex following threats from the warring factions to take over the assembly complex.
The state assembly has been experiencing some relative peace since Abok’s impeachment until the state high court judgment ordering his reinstatement.
Justice Nafisat Musa in the judgment, granted all the reliefs of the claimants ruling that the impeachment of Abok as a speaker is unconstitutional and against the house rules.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Bartholomew Onyeka, met with the factions for an amicable resolution of the crisis and is yet to make any statement on the issue.
