The Anambra State police command has announced the unsealing of the State house of Assembly complex in Awka.

But announcing the unsealing of the complex at about 11pm on Wednesday, SP Haruna Mohammed, PPRO Anambra State Police Command, speaking for the Commissioner, said it unsealed the assembly on the request of the leadership of the house.

He, however, did not state which faction had made the call.
