A former Member representing Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency, Dachung Musa Bagos, has said that four persons in his constituency died after he was sacked by the Appeal Court on Wednesday.
Bagos stated this during an interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today.
The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja had sacked three House of Representatives members from Plateau State including Bagos.
But during the interview, Bagos said that people had begun to lose hope in the system, comparing his sacking with a military coup.
He said, “I was court martialed yesterday (Wednesday). What happened was just like a military coup. From the reaction you are just seeing from the street after sacking seven National Assembly members through the court and all of them are from the PDP, you will know that all of us won our elections with different margins. Mine was sixty something thousand.
“As a representative of the people, you will definitely get such a reaction because there is an act of injustice. Two senators and five house of representative members were sacked.
“This is shocking. Four people died because of the shock. A woman was holding a baby when she heard the news. She slumped and was rushed to a hospital and she died. She had high BP. There was a shock on our side.”
