Plenary at the House of Representatives has been disrupted by some members over the nomination of principal officers, reports Channels TV.
According to the report attempts were made to take away the mace but the sergeant arms and the security of the National Assembly kept custody of the Chamber’s symbol of authority.
Earlier before the disruption, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila who contested alongside Hon. Yakubu Dogara was seen conferring with the Speaker, and then the situation escalated.
After calm was restored, the Speaker admonished the lawmakers not to start the 8th Assembly on a storming note, as they came to the lower chamber to represent their constituencies.
