Security at Kwara state house of assembly stopped a suspended lawmaker from entering the premises, despite a court order against his suspension.
Iliasu Ibrahim, was among two PDP lawmakers suspended in 2012, but has since challenged his suspension in court, which ordered his reinstatement and pay.
The house in turn has challenged the court ruling, but its objection was thrown out on March 11, correspondents report.
Ibrahim resumed work at the assembly complex on Tuesday but faced stiff resistance from security men who allegedly prevented him from entering the premises on the order of the house speaker Razak Atunwa.
“They said the Speaker has instructed them not to allow me,” Ibrahim told Daily Trust.
“I sought to find out why, I saw the clerk but the Clerk also said it is only the Speaker that can give order for me to come in...So they are disobeying the court order,” he said.
But an aide to the speaker, Abdulrahman Sanni, has said he was not aware Ibrahim was barred entry to the house complex.
