There was palpable apprehension at the Ondo State House of Assembly, Akure, on Monday, as some people suspected to be political thugs laid siege at the Assembly complex.
The fierce-looking men numbering over 100 arrived at the Assembly complex around 9am and stationed themselves at the main entrance, with scores of vehicles parked on the road leading to the Assembly.
It was gathered that the invasion of the Assembly by the suspected political thugs might not be unconnected with the plans of some suspended lawmakers to resume at their respective offices today after a court injunction.
However, men of the state Police command who were drafted to the Assembly complex prevented the hoodlums from entering into the complex as they mounted barricades.
Some of the Assembly workers who are going into the complex were scrutinised before being allowed to enter.
