Hoodlums on Monday reportedly attacked Bauchi State lawmakers at their guest house, damaging cars and windows during a function in the state.

The House is embroiled in a leadership crisis since last Thursday with 22 members passing a vote of no confidence on the Speaker, Abubakar Suleiman, and principal officers of the assembly.

The Majority Leader of the House, Babale Abubakar told newsmen on Monday in Bauchi that the latest attack which happened at about 4 pm as the lawmakers were having a meeting, left six of them injured.

Abubakar said no sooner than the Special Adviser on State and National Assembly Liaison to the state governor, Mani Mohammed Burra, left them that the hoodlums unleashed their mayhem.

According to him, one of them held him by the neck and asked if he was still a leader in the house.

“He said they were ready to kill me. Six members were injured in the process. Some were taken to the hospital and l believe they would be fine.

“It was a scary situation. It is sad,” he said.

He however said the matter had been reported to the Commissioner of Police in the state.

Reacting to the development, Burra dissociated himself and the executive arm from the attack.

He described it as uncalled for and unnecessary at a time efforts are being made to resolve the leadership crisis rocking the legislature.

The governor’s aide also called on security agencies to investigate the incident and arrest and prosecute those involved in the bastardy act to serve as a deterrent.
