BREAKING: Gunshot In Bayelsa Assembly As Speaker Makes Away With Mace

There was panic and gunshots in Bayelsa House of Assembly on Monday as speaker leaves with mace.

It was gathered that while the House was sitting, Speaker Emmanuel Isenah adjourned the plenary indefinitely in a tactical manoeuvre to foil his removal.

But thugs were said to have immediately stormed the House, shooting sporadically and made away with the mace.

They took away the mace, the legislative symbol of power and authority. 

The Speaker of the Bayelsa State House of Assembly Tonye Isenah, was expected to resign today at the floor of the house. 

Isenah’s expected resignation, followed pressure mounted on him by some Peoples Democratic Party’s leaders to resign ahead of the ‪November 16 governorship election.

Meanwhile, Some of the state’s lawmakers have reportedly elected Monday Obolo as the new speaker. 

Obolo is representing Southern Ijaw Constituency 2.
