Mudashiru Obasa, Speaker, Lagos State House of Assembly.

The crisis rocking the Lagos State House of Assembly has deepened as the Speaker of the House, Mudashiru Obasa on Monday disbanded a committee set up to resolve the impasse that led to the removal of two principal officers and the suspension of two others.

Obasa said there is no going back on the removal and suspension of the lawmakers.

According to him, there was no more need for the Hon. Ibrahim Layode committee set up over the weekend to resolve the impasse with the affected lawmakers.

Obasa said this was because of publications on the crisis over the weekend, especially the interview with the removed Chief Whip, Hon. Rotimi Abiru published in the Punch.
