Until the security of members of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly is guaranteed, lawmakers will no longer hold sittings, the Speaker of the Assembly, Musa Mohammed has said.


Mr. Mohammed spoke at a news conference on Tuesday in Lafia in the presence of the state commissioner of police, Umaru Shehu.
According to PREMIUM TIMES, hundreds of youths earlier yesterday  invaded the Assembly complex pelting it with stones and other weapons after the state governor, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, appeared before the lawmakers following his summon.
The incident might not be unconnected with purported plans by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) dominated House of Assembly to impeach the governor following his non-implementation of its resolutions.
