Kaduna House of Assembly Members Exchange Blows, Following Impeachment of Deputy Speaker

There was drama at the Kaduna State House of Assembly on Thursday, following the impeachment of the Deputy Speaker, Honourable Mukhtar Hazo.

After his impeachment, Mr Isaac Auta, was elected by members of the assembly, as the new deputy speaker. Honorable Isaac Auta represents Kauru State Constituency.

Problem started when lawmakers loyal to the impeached Deputy Speaker Mukhtar Hazo, started exchanging blows with the other members, as they tried to make away with the maze.

On his part, the Speaker of the House, Zailani told Channels Television that the impeached deputy was the author of his own problems.

Zailani accused Hazo of conniving with other lawmakers to remove him as the speaker, claiming that the former deputy speaker also committed other infractions that were against the rule of the House.

To avoid further brouhaha, all entrances leading to and from the Assembly complex, were shutdown.
