Massive police deployment around Edo State House of Assembly Complex on Thursday.
The armed men of the Nigerian Police arrived the complex very early in the morning and took over the complex.
The deployment of the policemen, led by a Deputy Commissioner of Police, Ayoola Ajala, may not be unconnected with the brewing tension in Edo State House of Assembly (ESHA).
The Deputy Speaker of the ESHA, Hon. Yekini Idiaye, had on Wednesday been impeached during a plenary session of the house.
Idiaye had on Monday led four other lawmakers to the residence of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the September 19, 2020 election, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, to pledge his allegiance.
