There was panic around the Ondo State House of Assembly earlier today, as thugs numbering almost 100 laid siege on the premises.
Some lawmakers were alleged to be the target of the thugs.
The suspected thugs numbering were sighted at the main gate of the Assembly complex with their vehicles parked along the road leading to the complex.
It was gathered that the presence of the political thugs was not unconnected with the rancour within members of the state Assembly.
However, the men of the state police command, who arrived the venue before the hoodlums, prevented them from gaining access.
The security men mounted barricades at the entrance of the complex and scrutinized whoever was going into the Assembly complex.
