Members of the Anambra State House of Assembly has asked the police to unseal the legislative complex to enable them to carry out their lawful activities, unhindered.
The Anambra State Police Command had on Thursday last weak sealed the assembly complex following a fracas that had resulted from the impeachment of the Speaker, Rita Maduagwu, on Tuesday.
The lawmakers at a press conference described the action of the police as illegal, unconstitutional and an abuse of office.
The lawmakers asked the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris to caution the Anambra State Command, stating that the command’s action amounted to attacking the symbol of democracy in the state.
Speaking on behalf of the pro-Maduagwu impeachment group, the factional Speaker of the Assembly, Ikem Uzoezie said at no time did the leadership of the House request the police to take over the complex.
Describing the police action as uncalled for, Uzoezie urged the public to condemn the development.
