Eyewitnessreporters gathered that trouble broke out when Chidari, in his attempt to make observation known to members, was instantly opposed by members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Assembly.

In the process, a heated debate ensued which resulted to a physical combat with the opposition members struggling to take control of the mace.
