Hoodlums Attack Legislators in Kogi State

The crisis rocking the Kogi State House of Assembly took a turn for the worse on Wednesday as suspected thugs attacked some members of the assembly and destroyed their vehicles.

The vehicles of the factional Speaker, Godwin Osiyi; the Deputy Speaker, John Abba and the Majority Leader, Matthew Kolawole, were vandalized within the premises of an hotel in Lokoja, the state capital.

It was gathered that the thugs, numbering about 10, invaded the hotel along Kunama Crescent adjacent the “A” division of the Nigeria Police GRA, Lokoja. The invasion led to pandemonium within the premises of the hotel as workers and guests ran helter skelter.

According to him, he had got a distress call from Kolawole that he had been attacked in town by some hoodlums.
He said the lawmakers decided to drive down to the hotel to deliberate on the issue when the suspected thugs invaded the hotel.

He said before they could call for help, the thugs had destroyed the cars and threatened to kill the owners of the vehicles and apart from the vehicles that were destroyed, the attackers also stole money and other valuables in the cars.

Osiyi, however, said the security agencies in the state had been alerted over the development.
