The Nasarawa State House of Assembly has been shut down indefinitely following the attack on the lawmakers on Tuesday evening by irate youth.
The closure was announced at a press conference by the Speaker, Musa Mohammed, in Lafia in the presence of the state Commissioner of Police, Shehu Umar.
Mr. Mohammed said the Assembly had earlier alerted security agencies in the state of the impending attack; and yet the youth found their way into the state assembly.
The speaker said the house would no longer sit until the security of the members is guaranteed.
On his part, the police boss said the police is trying to calm the situation and would ensure that the perpetrators are brought to book.
