A political aide to former governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State, Mr. Anthony Akosinkwe, yesterday stormed chamber of the state House of Assembly to disrupt the screening of the six commissioner nominees sent to the House by Acting Governor Prince Sam Obi.

Akosinkwe disrupted the screening for hours and scared the legislators who were already seated at the chamber for the screening.

His behavior had almost marred the screening exercise before the Acting Speaker, Basil Ganagana, called his colleagues who had wanted to escape, to return to their seats. Akosinkwe alias Jimra, started singing and dancing, calling on the legislators to support and vote the former governor to power in the fresh election.

He said if the law makers fail to vote for Uduaghan, 'the House will be on fire'. Considering this as an assault to the House, Victor Ochei, representing Aniocha North Constituency, moved for his arrest. The House  unanimously adopted the motion moved by Ochei, and Mr. Akosinkwe  was handed over to security men.
