It has happened again as supporters of Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose invaded the state House of Assembly complex in a bid to stop the impeachment move against the governor.
The 19 All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers in the state say the impeachment proceedings against Governor Fayose will still continue despite a recent Supreme Court ruling affirming his eligibility to contest in the June 2014 elections.

However, the governor’s loyalists besieged the Assembly complex on Monday, April 20, 2015, in order to stop the lawmakers from having access to the complex.
Schools and offices in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, have remained closed due to fears that violence might occur.
Fayose had initially sued for peace and urged the APC lawmakers to sheathe their swords.
But on Sunday, April 19, 2015, the governor, via a broadcast to the state, called on transport unions, market women and workers to rise up and protect the mandate they gave him.
He also said in the statement that he was enjoying the mandate of God and anyone who ignored God’s voice was doing Satan’s bidding.
