There is ongoing confusion at the Edo state house of assembly, located at Ring Road axud of Benin City, as some men on Thursday vandalised the Assembly and removed its roof.

According to a video shared by Channels Television, the men were seen removing the iconic legislative mace on top of the building.

The video also showed trucks offloading gravels at the entrance of the Assembly Complex while the suspected vandals trooped into the building.

VOICE AIR MEDIA had earlier reported that policemen on Thursday surrounded the Assembly complex in Benin City, the state capital.

This is coming barely 24 hours after the Deputy Speaker, Yekini Idiaye, was impeached by the state lawmakers.

The member representing Orhionmwon-South constituency, Roland Asoro, has since been appointed deputy Speaker and was immediately administered the oath of office and oath of allegiance by the Speaker.

It was further gathered that the roofs of the Edo assembly complex were forcefully removed on the alleged orders of Governor Obaseki, under the guise that they were old and needed to be replaced.
