Punch-Up In Nigeria’s Parliament

An extraordinary brawl broke out in Nigeria’s National Assembly after a group of members were suspended for accusing the speaker of corruption.

Punches were thrown and at least one person was injured after the west African country’s parliament voted to suspend the 11 lawmakers.
The group had started blowing whistles as the House of Representatives read the motion.
They were being told their allegations had “embarrassed” the House when they began to fight.
Three male representatives were turfed out of the chamber, their clothes torn in the brawl.
A woman was also ejected.
