Protesters storm Lagos Assembly over planned impeachment of Ambode

 

A group of protesters on Wednesday stormed the Lagos State House of Assembly to protest against the planned impeachment of the state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.

The men and women, who carried banners with inscriptions of their agitations, said the removal of Ambode would disrupt the peaceful conduct of the general elections.

They asked the lawmakers to allow the governor complete his tenure.

The Assembly had accused the governor of gross misconduct and illegally spending from the 2019 budget, which had yet to be approved.
