Policemen take over Cross River House of Assembly


Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Some men of the Nigeria Police Force have blocked all entrances into the Cross River State House of Assembly following a court judgement sacking twenty law makers in the state.

Staff members of the Assembly were also turned back and cautioned not to loiter around.

Our source reports that they took positions as early as 6 a.m., Tuesday.

The different units include the anti-kidnapping and cultism squad and the regular policemen, armed to the teeth.

They also occupied the Assembly’s premises.

Sundiata Post recalls a judgment delivered at by a Federal High Court in Abuja, presided over by Justice Taiwo Taiwo, which sacked 18 lawmakers from the State and two in the House of Representatives for crossing from the PDP to the APC on May 20, 2021.

Some of the policemen were also seen standing close to Governor Ben Ayade’s office, which is a few metres away.
