Following the court judgment sacking 20 members of the Cross River State House of Assembly, police operatives have taken over the assembly.

The lawmakers were sacked on Monday, March 21, 2022, by the Federal High Court in Abuja for defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
