Photos: REPS FIGHT AS BARAJE`S GROUP MEET MARK, TAMBUWAL



Violence broke out Tuesday evening at a meeting between members of the House of Representatives and the leaders of the Abubakar Baraje-Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) faction, marring lawmakers’ resumption after two months break.

The governors, alongside the chairman of the faction, Abubakar Baraje, met first with senate president, David Mark. A follow up meeting at the House of Representatives with Speaker Aminu Tambuwal, and members of the House, degenerated into chaos with supporters of the Bamanga Tukur-led PDP jeering at remarks made by Mr Baraje.

The chaos soon escalated after two members, Dagogo Peterside and Henry Ofongo, from Rivers and Bayelsa states respectively, went up against each other.

Mr. Baraje told Mr. Mark that President Goodluck Jonathan must give up his ambition for a new term. Source Premium Times
