Hundreds of protesters on Wednesday stormed the Lagos State House of Assembly to protest the planned impeachment of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

The protesters, in their number marched to the Assembly and caused traffic gridlock
The protesters carried placards, saying that any move to impeach Ambode would disrupt the coming election, adding that the governor should be allowed to complete his tenure.

The protesters said the governor did not deserve the treatment he was getting from the party, saying they should leave the governor alone.

The State House of Assembly had moved to impeach Ambode over what they called gross misconduct and spending part of the 2019 budget that had not been presented to the Assembly for approval.

They gave the governor one week to appear before the House to explain the infractions levelled against him.
