BREAKING: EDO STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY IMPEACHES SPEAKER
The Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Francis Okiye, has been impeached.
His impeachment followed a motion by the Majority Leader of the House, Henry Okhurobo, that Okiye be removed over allegations of high-handedness.
His impeachment letter was signed by nine out of the 10-member Assembly present at a brief sitting on Monday.
The House immediately elected Marcus Onobun, representing Esan West State Constituency, as the new Speaker.
