As tension continue to gather in the upcoming election in Edo State, there was little drama on Thursday at the Edo Assembly complex as some men were seen pulling down the bold mace mounted at the roof of the Assembly.
According to a video shared by Channels Television, the men were seen removing the iconic legislative mace on top of the building and the video also revealed trucks offloading gravels at the entrance of the Assembly Complex.
Also, several artisans were also seen removing the roof of the complex as at Thursday afternoon.
According to reports, Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, may have been behind this as it was also rumored that the lawmakers intend to impeach him and his deputy.
The Gazelle News.com had earlier reported that policemen on Thursday besieged the Assembly complex in Benin City, the state capital.
