The Ekiti State House of Assembly has raised the alarm over what it called ‘strange deployment of heavily armed policemen’ to the premises of the House.
The Speaker of the Assembly, Kola Oluwawole, who briefed newsmen in Ado Ekiti Thursday morning, said the heavily armed policemen were deployed around 9 pm on Wednesday.
Mr Oluwawole, who addressed newsmen in the company of 17 other members, accused members who defected to All Progressives Congress, APC, prior to the governorship election as responsible for the act.
The Speaker said the defected lawmakers allegedly forged a letter purportedly written by the Clerk, Tola Esan, and addressed to the Police Commissioner, Bello Ahmed, calling for deployment when such was unwarranted.
He drew the attention of the public to the antics of the opposition and their alleged resolve to cause confusion in the Assembly.
The Assembly members ordered the indefinite closure of the House pending the time security will be restored.
