Nigerian Court

A faction of the Anambra State House of Assembly has sued the state Police Commissioner, Garba Umar, Gov. Willie Obiano and others over the sealing of the Assembly complex.

The faction led by the new Speaker of the Assembly, Ikem Uzoezie disclosed this on Sunday in Awka, the Anambra state capital.

Uzoezie said he was aware of plans by those sued to aid the Rita Maduagwu faction to remain in power, despite having been impeached.

He said nothing would revert the impeachment of Maduagwu that was carried out on 13th of November by about 25 out of the 30 members of the House.

He described the sealing of the Assembly by the police on the alleged instruction of the state government as “executive recklessness and madness”.

Uzoezie vowed that the lawmakers in the state must be liberated from the status of stooges to the executive arm, adding that the lawsuit against the police commissioner and Obiano would commence today.
