Gunmen stormed the premises of the Imo state House of Assembly shooting sporadically. The attack came shortly after the suspension of 6 house members by the leadership of the assembly. All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state has sued for peace following the suspension.

Unknown gunmen stormed the Imo State House of Assembly on Thursday, shooting sporadically.

The attack occurred shortly after the assembly’s leadership suspended six members of the house.

The assembly’s speaker, Paul Emeziem, and other members of the House narrowly avoided being shot by gunmen who stormed the building during plenary. The lawmakers who were suspended were accused of engaging in “unparliamentary activities.”

However, the state’s All Progressives Congress (APC) has requested a cease-fire following the suspension of six House of Assembly members. In an interview with newsmen in Owerri on Thursday, Mr Cajetan Duke, the APC’s Publicity Secretary in Imo, made the call in response to the suspension.

The Assembly, according to Duke, is “an independent organ of government.” He urged the lawmakers who had been suspended to refrain from acting in a way that would jeopardize their public image or the legislative House. He stated that as law-abiding citizens, the party would not only respect the Assembly’s independence, but would also support any decisions made by its leadership.
“The APC respects the House of Assembly’s independence and supports any disciplinary measures that promote decorum. He said, “We urge the suspended lawmakers to use the internal resolution mechanism to resolve issues.”
