Outcome of fight - Mr. Dino
Members of the Federal House of Representatives today engaged in a free -for-all fight[Violence and assault] on the floor of the house as
the Progressives led by Mr. Dino Melaye opposed to the embattled speaker of the house, Dimeji Bankole, tried to introduce a motion for his impeachment. They were suspended until the end of this legislative session and a fight ensued between ‘honourable members’.
Mr. Austin Nwachukwu who belongs to the progressives entered into the chambers with tear gas canisters and was severely beaten, while Mr. Igwe, a supporter of Bankole had his hand dislocated.
Mr. Dino too was not free from the beating as his clothes were torn in shreds, while a member Ms. Doris Uboh collapsed in the confusion as Mr. Independence Ogunewe escaped through the back door of the chambers for fear of manhandling by Bankole supporters
