This was contained in a letter with reference number HAGF/IGP/2020/Vol1/4, dated August 5, 2020, and titled: “Re: Urgent and nationalistic appeal to intervene in the restoration of constitutional democracy in Edo State of Nigeria,”

Malami said that the security measure is necessary to quell any breakdown of law and order following the controversial inauguration of the 14 members-elect on Thursday.

“I am requesting that you kindly provide adequate security measures for the purpose of the inauguration of the concerned members and the subsequent sittings of the Edo State House of Assembly,” he said.

The newly-sworn in lawmakers, including three others who had earlier sworn allegiance to the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the state, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, declared that the speaker and his deputy were impeached.

The lawmakers subsequently elected a member of the House representing Esan Central constituency, Victor Edoror, as speaker and Emmanuel Agbaje, Akoko-Edo constituency II as deputy speaker.

Edo Assembly complex was shut down on Thursday by the state governor, Godwin Obaseki after suspected thugs took down the roof of the building, before pulling down the iconic mace figure inside the House.
