|

The Speaker of Edo State House of Assembly, Francis Okiye, has been impeached.

His removal followed a motion by the Majority Leader of the House, Henry Okhurobo, that Okiye be removed over allegations of high-handedness in the affairs of the House, Punch reports.

It is understood that his impeachment letter was signed by nine out of the 10 members who were present during a brief sitting on Monday.

Following the impeachment, the House immediately swore in Marcus Onobun, representing Esan West State Constituency, as the new Speaker.
