The Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Godwin Osiyi, and three other principal officers of the House were on Wednesday attacked by suspected hoodlums loyal to the impeached speaker, Momoh Jimoh.

The thugs invaded the Riverton Hotel, Lokoja, venue of a meeting held by members of Osiyi’s group.

According to source, hoodlums armed with machetes, and other weapons damaged the official vehicles of the Speaker and those of other principal officers present at the meeting.


It was learnt that the official vehicle of the Majority Leader, Prince Kolawole Matthew, that of the factional Deputy Speaker, John Abah, and another vehicle belonging to a member representing Ofu were badly damaged by the thugs.

The factional Speaker, who addressed journalists after the incident, accused the impeached Lawal of orchestrating the attack on him and his members.

He alleged that the thugs arrived at the hotel in an official Hilux van belonging to the impeached speaker, adding that the hoodlums were led by a younger brother of the embattled Speaker.
