There was pandemonium at the Anambra state House of Assembly complex this morning after some thugs tried to invade the assembly premises.
Today was the first day for plenary after the impeachment of Speaker, Rita Maduagwu and mbile police officers had been stationed at the premises to prevent any breakdown of law and order.
However, at about 11am, a member of the house said to be loyal to Mrs Maduagwu, stormed the house with some thugs who tried to gain entrance into the complex but were repelled by the mobile policemen who threw tear gas at them.
It was at this point that everyone began to run for their lives. A member of the House, Mrs. Beverly Nkemdiche, was seen screaming
“They have killed me! I’m a member of the House. Please, don’t kill me…”
Normalcy has since returned to the area as more policemen have been drafted to the complex.
