Ondo Assembly Sealed Off Over Leadership Crisis

Following the leadership tussle rocking the Ondo State House of Assembly, policemen from the state police command Monday morning sealed off the Assembly complex to forestall any breakdown of law and order.

Fourteen members of the Assembly had last Friday impeached the Speaker, Mrs Jumoke Akindele; Deputy Speaker, Mr. Fatai Olotu; and Majority Leader, Ifedayo Akinsoyinu, over allegations of financial mismanagement, which the principal officers denied.

The lawmakers however elected Mr. Malachi Coker as the new Speaker, Mr. Ayodele Arowele as the Deputy Speaker and Olamide George as the Majority Leader respectively.

The event became dramatic as the two factions stormed the Assembly to hold plenary leading to the disruption of the activities.
