Ondo Lawmakers Alleges Assassination Plot As Political Thugs Surrounds Assembly Complex
Some members of Ondo State House of Assembly have raised the alarm over the alleged plot to kill them, following a group of Political thugs that surrounded the Assembly Complex.
KanyiDaily recalls that Ondo State High Court had reversed the suspension of four members of the state’s House of Assembly, who were earlier removed for alleged gross misconduct.
On Monday, thugs suspected to be members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, (NURTW) stormed the premises of the Assembly in their hundreds.
It was gathered that the thugs converged on the Assembly to prevent the four reinstated lawmakers from gaining entrance into the Assembly complex.
Reacting to the development, the Deputy Speaker of the Assembly, Iroju Ogundeji, who was one of the suspended lawmakers that were reinstated, accused Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and the Speaker, Bamidele Oleyelogun of masterminding the development.
“Idajo and his members from the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW came to the house to kill us on the order of the governor and the speaker. They said we should not enter the house to perform our constitutional legislative duties.
“Right now, we are helpless because they are using government power against us. We are only relying on God to come to our aide,” Ogundeji said.
KanyiDaily had also reported how a member of the Benue State House of Assembly, Hon. Jonathan Agbidye, was sent to prison for alleged kidnapping, armed robbery and criminal conspiracy.
