The road linking the Terminus Market from the Plateau Specialist Hospital through the assembly complex was blocked from traffic.

“If the politicians’ supporters come around, it is going to affect traffic and it may lead to breakdown of law and order.

“In order to save lives and property, we took this action so that we can control security arrangements within the Plateau House of the assembly area.

“If nothing happens, the security will be relaxed and everything will return to normal,” he explained

But Ayuba’s successor, Yakubu Sanda and 12 others filed an appeal and stay of execution on Tuesday.

Both Sanda and Ayuba are laying claim to speakership of the assembly.

While Ayuba is relying on his reinstatement, Sanda is holding unto the stay of execution.
