But the House of Assembly complex has remained a ghost, as members of the House and personnel working in the House did not turned out for work that morning.
However, some Plateau youths had besieged the State House of Assembly complex with corpses of the Yelwa Zangam community to registered their displeasure over how the attacks have spreads to many communities.
They youths told the Speaker of the House, Hon. Ayuba Abok to commenced the impeachment process against the Governor.
This action has generated tension in different parts of the state as some individuals on Facebook have sustained the pressure on the House of Assembly.

“It is not true that the House was sealed by security agencies but we have presence of security personnel in the House due to the tension over alleged plan to impeach the Governor.
“But there is no plan to impeach the Governor, we only gave the Governor two weeks ultimatum to address the security challenges in the state.”
