June 25, 2015 – Pictures: NASS Lawmakers Fighting With Chairs In Abuja, National House Of Assembly Members Turn Lawbreakers
Our lawmakers today paraded themselves as law breakers after a full blown physical battle ensued at the National House of Assembly complex in Abuja.
The fight was caused by the election of House Principal officers which didn’t go well with a faction supporting the ruling party.
Supporters of House Speaker Yakubu Dogara engaged pro-APC lawmakers in a free for all fight after the later accused Dogara of defying the ruling party.
The fight started as soon as Yakubu arrived at the House to commence plenary.
Pro APC lawmakers rushed forward to seize the mace, hence disrupting the plenary session.
The crisis resulted in exchange of blows, missing mace and flying chairs.
