There has been a report that some suspected loyal thugs of the impeached speaker , Momoh Jimoh attacked the speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Godwin Osiyi, and three other principal officers of the House on Wednesday.
The thugs were said to have stormed the Riverton Hotel, Lokoja, where the Osiyi group were having their meeting.

An eyewitness said the thugs raided the place with matchetes,and damaged the vehicles of some of the leaders present , Majority Leader, Prince Kolawole Matthew, that of the factional Deputy Speaker, John Abah and Ofu.

The speaker accused  the impeached speaker of masterminding the attack, noting that the thugs were led by the younger brother of Lawal and the Hilux they came with belongs to him.
According to Osiyi, “We have informed the police and the Department of State Services of our members since the impeachment saga of last Thursday.”

“We have been moving from one hotel to the other to avoid this ugly incident but naturally you cannot be roaming the streets. We were in the hotel when we started hearing gunshots. When we came out, we saw our vehicles vandalised.”

Reacting to the accusation against him, the impeached speaker said,’’ I did not send anyone to go and attack anybody; I had no business there, I’m a humble person and I condemn it in its entirety. I have been in my house since morning and I don’t know what happened at Reverton. I’m not part of want happened there,” he said
