Written by on June 11, 2020

There was free-for-all on Thursday as a 24- member Kaduna House of Assembly impeached Deputy Speaker, Hon. Mukhtar Isa Hazo.

The development followed a vote of no confidence on him.

Just after the impeachment, a new Deputy Speaker emerged. He is Hon. Isaac Auta representing Kauru Constituency.

According to The Nation Online report, Auta was immediately sworn in by the Clerk of the Assembly, who administered oaths of office and allegiance on him.

Shortly after the swearing in, member representing Makera Constituency, Hon. Liman Dahiru broke into the floor of the Assembly and seized the maze.

However before he could make his way out of the chamber, he was grabbed by the Sergeant at Arm while other members quickly rushed in to retrieve the maze from him.

The plenary thereafter ended in a rowdy session while the aggrieved member, Dahiru Liman was dragged out of the chamber.

Liman, who had his dress torn, was later seen outside the Assembly Chamber displaying anger over the the impeachment of Hazo.
