Impeached Plateau speaker, others arrested

The impeached speaker of the Plateau State House of Assembly, Abok Ayuba, has been arrested.

A faction of the house had impeached Mr Ayuba last week but he in return suspended the aggrieved camp.

He was arrested on Monday alongside 10 other members of the house loyal to him.

Arresting them is the Commissioner of Police Edward Ebuka, reports The Nation.

Before the lawmakers were being taken away through the back door of the legislative premises, youths besieged the complex protesting in support of the two camps before the police fired gunshots to disperse them.
