Nigeria

A chaotic scene developed at Nigeria’s House of Representatives in September 2013 when politicians from a splinter group from the ruling party tried to address the lawmakers, only to be met with taunting shouts from lawmakers loyal to President Jonathan Goodluck, according to BBC. The legislators then proceeded to batter each other, tearing shirts and hoisting chairs, at a parliament session.
