Mace Theft: APC Lawmakers Suspended
The Gombe State House of Assembly has suspended four All Progressives Congress (APC) members for allegedly conspiracy.
They were accused of removing the mace in a bid to prevent the impeachment of Minority Leader, Ahmed Haruna.
The suspended APC lawmakers are: Abdullahi Abubakar, Mohammed Bello, Ibrahim Abdullahi and Walid Mohammed.
The APC members were annoyed following the role of Haruna in the APC ward and council’s congress in the state.
The minority leader, had on May 6 led the APC supporters’ forum to reject the outcome of the ward congress, describing it as ‘total failure’.
Fabulous Amos, Chairman House Committee on Information and Majority leader, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) announced the decision of the house to suspend the four APC lawmakers on Thursday.
He described the incidence at the floor of the house as undemocratic and unfortunate.
“What happened today is not good in terms of any democratic setting. We are peace loving members here but unfortunately, an incident occurred this noon.
He said the mace was allegedly taken by Abdullahi Abubakar of Akko West state constituency at exactly 1.15p.m and was assisted by Mr Mohammed Bello of Gombe South constituency all APC.
