Two members of the House of Representatives on Tuesday slapped each other over the crisis generated by the composition of the standing and special committees.

Honorable Hermans Hembe and Aliyu Madaki both on opposing camps threw caution into the winds and gave each other one slap each, TVC reports

The Reps, both of who are members of the All Progressives Congress, slapped themselves in the White House within the National Assembly.
The altercation occurred before the day’s sitting began.

It took the intervention of the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yusuf Lasun, to separate Hembe (APC-Benue) and Madaki (APC-Kano).

There had been altercations over the allocation of chairmanship of House Committees by the Speaker, Hon. Yakubu Dogara.

There were allegations of favouritism in the allocation of the headship of the committees.
Hembe emerged as the chairman of the Committee on the Federal Capital Territory, which is considered as a Grade A committee and by extension juicy.
