Reports coming from Benin City, the Edo State capital said that Police have taken over the Edo State House of Assembly complex in Benin City.
This is coming just a day after the Deputy Speaker Hon. Yekini Idiaye was impeached and replaced with Roland Asoro, the lawmaker representing Orhionmwon II Constituency.
Many security officials surrounded the complex on Thursday with their patrol vehicle stationed there.
It was gathered that security operatives stormed the complex over an alleged attack on it. The police officers were led to the Assembly by a Deputy Commissioner of Police (Operations), Ayoola Ajala.
Those at the Assembly include operatives attached to the Police Mobile Force and Operation Thunderstorm.
Shortly after the police were deployed at the facility, personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) also arrived at the complex.
