Former vice president and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Atiku Abubakar has condemned the siege on the Akwa Ibom House of Assembly earlier today.

Recall that Today’s Echo had earlier reported that there was confusion at the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly after an attempt by five lawmakers to take over the house and impeach the speaker sparked intense commotion.

“The ongoing siege of Akwa Ibom House of Assembly is reprehensible & stands condemned. Such action is a threat to democratic institutions & portends grave danger to our democracy. The FG should direct security agencies to rein in these anti-democratic elements & restore peace, ” Atiku said, via a Twitter statement.
