And here’s what caused the fight.

After a two-year tenure of the chairmen of 11 local government areas in the state ended on March 24, the Governor, Tanko Al-Makura, appointed and inaugurated sole administrators to man the affairs of their local government councils pending when elections would be conducted.

ChannelsNews reports that during the inauguration ceremony, Governor Almakura gave the
assurance that elections would be conducted as soon as possible.

The swearing in ceremony of the administrators held at the Conference Hall of the Government House was graced by traditional rulers security personnel, members of State Executive Council.

The Governor’s decision, however, did not go down well for some lawmakers, as they had earlier
resolved to conduct elections immediately after the expiration of the tenure of the local government council chairmen.

Six out of the 24 lawmakers alleged that the other lawmakers had received money to go against their resolution.

The allegations may have prompted the House leader to move for their suspension, a motion that resulted to chaos.

The suspended members prevented the sitting and exchange harsh words and then, a fight began.
