Law enforcement employs tear gas against 16 dismissed Plateau PDP legislators.


On Tuesday, armed police officers deployed tear gas against the 16 members of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Plateau State House of Assembly, who had been ousted by the Court of Appeal.

The legislators, accompanied by their supporters, had gathered at the Rayfield Old Government House in Jos that morning, intending to resume plenary when the incident occurred.

Security forces, including the police, seized control of the Government House premises, barring the dismissed lawmakers from accessing the Assembly chambers.

Despite this, the lawmakers remained adamant about not leaving the premises.

Further details will be provided later.
