Frightening! Man explodes car in Akwa Ibom State Assembly complex, flees


The political controversy playing out in the Akaw Ibom State House of Assembly has taken a frightening dimension as a young man drove a car to the entrance of the complex, stepped down, set the vehicle on fire and fled the scene.

The young man was however, arrested by the police and interrogated.

It would be recalled that five lawmakers loyal to APC and ex-governor Godwill Akpabio, whose seats were earlier declared vacant, rose on Tuesday, assumed their seats and started an impeachment process against the state Govermor, Udom Emmanuel.

A rowdy atmosphere ensued when the governor arrived at the assembly complex at Udo Udoma Avenueto quell  the plot of the lawmakers.

Gunshots were fired by those eyewitnesses described as security operatives and thugs who were around the premises immediately Gov. Emmanuel entered the premises,.

According to the reports, the new speaker, Mr Nse Ntuen, who had earlier sat with four other lawmakers, was also harassed by security personnel in the assembly premises.

Ntuen’s vehicle was said to have been damaged while he escaped a mob action by some persons believed to be Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members.

Trouble started in the house last week when the Speaker, Onofiok Luke, declared vacant, the seats of the five lawmakers who defected from the PDP to the All Progressive Congress (APC).
