Thugs Invade Edo Council, Beat Councillors

Councillors in Oredo local government area were on Monday beaten up and chased out of the council secretariat by suspected thugs.

The thugs invaded the council secretariat to allow acting chairman of the council, Mrs. Sweet Ikponmwosa, return to office.

Mrs. Ikponmwosa was last Thursday suspended over inability to pay salaries, administrative incompetence and failure to account for Internally Generated Revenue since she assumed office.

The door to her office was locked and armed policemen who were present to prevent escalation of the crisis searched workers who resumed for duties.

However, the presence of policemen did not stop the hired thugs from descending on the councillors.

Office of the acting chairman was forced open and the clothes of the House Leader, Ernest Edebiri, was torn to shred.
