This video ranks as one of the most shameful we’ve seen in a long while.
The men in the video are “honourable” members of the state assembly. The man with the mace, pummelling his colleagues is the House leader, Chidi Lloyd, a strong loyalist of the state governor, Rotimi Amaechi. The one on a blue native attire fretting and attempting to escape is Evans Bipi, the head of the anti-Amaechi lawmakers. The man being ruthlessly beaten by Lloyd is Kelechi Wogu, a member who represents Obio/Akpor in the state assembly.
Both Wogu and Lloyd are allegedly recuperating in the hospital.
Although Lloyd was earlier brutalised by the anti-Amaechi lawmakers, he looked in very healthy condition in this video, so unless more action happened after this, it’s safe to say he didn’t sustain very critical injuries. Wogu’s case was however more serious as the video below shows.
