BREAKING: Trouble In Edo As Police Takeover House Of Assembly


All may not be well at the Edo State House of Assembly in Benin City as a detachment of heavily armed Policemen have taken over the complex to forestall an alleged planned attack on the facility.

NewsBreakNG can confirm that the large number of the armed security operatives who gathered at the entrance of the Assembly facility are not allowing anyone entry or exit as at the time of this report.

It can also be confirmed that the situation at the Edo State House of Assembly has led to Governor Godwin Obaseki to cancel his State Campaign to Okpilla, Edo North today and returned to Benin City to monitor events as they unfold.

Although no official statement has been made by the authorities in Edo state on the development, our correspondent gathered that the deployment of the Police at the Assembly complex may not be unconnected with the impeachment of the Deputy Speaker of Edo State House Assembly, Hon Idaiye yesterday (Wednesday) in Benin City.
