Kaduna House of Assembly members fight over mace after impeaching Deputy Speaker (video)

Some Kaduna lawmakers engaged in a free-for-all fight shortly after impeaching the Deputy Speaker of the House of Assembly and swearing-in a new one.

LIB reported earlier that Mukhtar Isa Hazo, the former deputy speaker of Kaduna state house of assembly was impeached after his colleagues passed a vote of no confidence on him.

The fight ensued after Hon. Liman Dahiru, the lawmaker representing Makera Constituency broke into the floor of the Assembly and seized the mace.

However before he could leave the complex, he was grabbed by the Sergeant at Arm while other members quickly rushed in to retrieve the mace from him. This led to a rowdy session at the assembly, before Dahiru was dragged out.

The Nation reported that the lawmaker who attempted seizing the maze was seen later with a torn cloth outside the Assembly Chamber, expressing his anger over the impeachment of Hazo.
