Drama was not in short supply Thursday at the Kogi State House of Assembly, as the G-15 members, including Speaker, Momoh Jimoh Lawal convened sitting after months of shutout by the G-5 members, led by Hon. Unar Imam. The G-15 lawmakers came fully ready, including the mace-bearing Sergeant-at-arms.
Lawal was reinstated by the Federal High Court in Abuja last week. From the main entrance, to the Assembly Complex where there was heavy presence of security details, including the Police, operatives of the Department of State Security (DSS) and personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), when they arrived the complex, the G-15 members made to commence plenary, but found the gate under lock and key.
After verbal altercations between them and the security agents, the main gate and chamber door were forced open to enable them begin the business of the day.
