It was a free-for-all fight on Monday when the Deputy Speaker and chairman of the Public Complaints and Petition Committee, Hamisu Ibrahim Chidari raised observation over the ongoing investigation of petitions of an alleged violation of the culture, tradition and religious values of the people of Kano by Emir Muhammad Sanusi 11.
Trouble broke out when Chidari in his attempt to make his observation known to members, he was instantly opposed by members identified as Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members.
We gathered that a heated debate ensued in the process which resulted in physical combat, as the opposition members struggled to take control of the mace.
In the process, the mace was instantly rescued by security men and the Sergeant of Arm attached to the Assembly.
Reports has it that the fisticuff lasted for about 25 minutes before the House restored back to normalcy and went for a 30 minutes break.
As at the time of filling in this report, security has been beefed up at the Assembly to forestall any eventuality
