Edo Assembly crisis: Protest rocks Benin over Reps’ decision (Photos)

                             Edo Assembly crisis
Some Edo State residents Thursday carried out what they termed solidarity protest at the Oba Ovboramwen king square in Benin over the House of Representatives’ call on Governor Godwin Obaseki to issue a fresh proclamation of the state’s House of Assembly or risk its take over by the Federal House.

Akelicious reports that the protesters are now saying that the House of Reps does not have the power to give such order, arguing that there is already an existing interlocutory injunction from the Federal High Court sitting in Benin, which barred the Inspector-General of Police, the Department of State Services, DSS, APC NWC or their agents from disrupting Edo Assembly’s proceedings.

The House of Representatives yesterday asked the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, to issue a fresh proclamation to convene the 9th House of Assembly in Edo State. It issued a seven-day ultimatum to the governor to carry out the order or risk the House taking over the Assembly.
