Thugs invade Ondo Assembly


Suspected political thugs invaded the Ondo State House of Assembly on Monday morning.

The suspected thugs gathered on the assembly complex ahead of the arrival of lawmakers who are loyal to the Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi.

The lawmakers are Ogundeji Iroju (Odigbo constituency), Wale Williams (Ondo constituency I), Tomide Akinribido (Ondo constituency II), and Favour Tomomowo (Ilaje constituency II).

The pro-Ajayi lawmakers had earlier been suspended but a high court in Akure, the state capital, voided their suspension.

They were planning to resume at plenary on Monday but the suspects laid siege to the assembly.

Speaker of the Assembly, Bamidele Oleyelogun, insisted that they were not thugs but members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW).

He said the NURTW members were at the Assembly premises for a meeting on conduct during the forthcoming elections.
