Imo: House of Assembly Security Agents Lock Out Lawmakers Over Unpaid Allowances

To protest against non payment of their allowances, some security personnel at the Imo State House of Assembly decided to lock out the lawmakers on Tuesday, thereby keeping them from holding their meeting.

According to the aggrieved security men, they were being owed 5 months allowances and had vowed not to allow the State lawmakers entrance into the chambers, unless it was paid.

They added that the leadership of the State House of Assembly have always turned a deaf ear to their pleas.

Sources said that the situation was calmed by the Assembly Clerk, Chinelo Emeghara, who promised to look into it.

However, the member representing Oru-west state constituency, Dominic Ezerioha, told newsmen that nothing of such happened and that whatever move the security agents at the Assembly complex have taken to press home their demands was what they believed was the most feasible. He added that plenary still held that day.
