The crisis currently rocking the Plateau State House of Assembly has taken another messy turn as the impeached Speaker, Hon. Nuhu Ayuba Abok and 10 other members who are loyal to him were arrested on Monday afternoon and whisked away to an unknown destination by security agents said to be invited by the new Speaker, Hon. Sanda Yakubu.
Eyewitnesses say the drama unfolded itself at about 3:20 pm when the Plateau State Commissioner of Police, Edward Ebuka, led the 11 members to four awaiting Hilux vehicles to an unknown destination.
The members reportedly said they are firm and resolute in their duties to Plateau people that voted them into the House in the struggle to fight to a logical conclusion until the impeached Speaker was reinstated.
Hon Zingtin Sochang, member representing Langtang South, was heard saying:
“We are now being bundled into four Hilux Vehicles by security men to a yet to be known location and if after 20 miniutes you call us and no response, you should know that we have been taken to an unknown place.”
