A resident close to the Plateau Assembly complex, John Sumdi who confirmed the development in Jos on Thursday said, ” I just woke up this morning to see the police and other security operatives everywhere. We can’t even go out with our vehicles because the road has been blocked. My concern is how to take the children to school. We are stranded at the moment.”

It was gathered that the security operatives were drafted to the Assembly complex to prevent a breakdown of law and order over alleged plans to impeach the House of Assembly Speaker, Ayuba Abok. It was also gathered that some lawmakers are currently sitting at the Assembly complex.
