The Speaker of the Adamawa State House of Assembly, Kabiru Mijinyawa, has beaten up a police sergeant attached to him.
A witness told journalists in Yola Thursday that the Speaker got angry when the policeman complained about non-payment of his allowances. The Speaker grabbed the policeman and slapped him severally until the man was rescued by some security men around.
“The dazed sergeant was rescued by a civil defence man who had to remind the Speaker that he was beating up a policeman,” the witness said.
Attempts to talk to the Speaker were unsuccessful as he did not respond to calls and text messages sent to him.
