The Cross River State Assembly complex is currently being taken over by officials from the Department of State Services (DSS), the Dragon Squad, and members of the Nigeria Police Force. This was following the impeachment of the Assembly speaker, Elvert Anyambem. The PUNCH reports that Ayambem was impeached over alleged gross misconduct and financial misappropriation.

The move to remove the speaker has been on for some months as members have been expressing displeasure with his conduct and operations of the assembly. As of Tuesday, over 20 members had signed up for his impeachment, and the motion for his removal was moved on the floor of the House by the member representing Calabar South 1, Effiong Ekarika, and seconded by Charles Omang. After impeaching him, the mace was taken away by the members.
