The Embattled Plateau State House of Assembly Speaker Ayuba and Ten Others have been Arrested
After laying siege to the State Assembly since daybreak, the State Police Commissioner, Edward Egbuka, and some important officials from the various security groups in the State put them into Hilux trucks at around 3.15 p.m.
Abok was carried away through the back gate of the State Assembly shortly after security personnel used tear gas and stray gunshots to disperse the peaceful protestors and journalists.
Although the members of the House claim they were not told where they were being taken since Abok continues to shout, “I can’t say if I am under arrest at this time,” it is believed they are being brought to Abuja.
Security agents who had besieged the premises had departed at the time of this report, leaving only a few staff loitering around the area, while teary-eyed adolescents return in groups discussing the situation.
Ezra Maren, one of them, chastised the Governor, Simon Lalong, for “encouraging lawlessness.”
“This is beyond Abok,” he says, “how can our Governor allow himself to be so discredited as a lawyer?”
“He claimed he had no control over security, but he did have control over how he used them to suppress people’s wishes.”
“Don’t forget who’s leading this charge. Check out the identities of others besides the wayward Na’anlong.”
