Edo Assembly Speaker Suspends 3 Lawmakers For Alleged Impeachment  Plot

From Imafidon OSAZUA (Benin)

The Speaker of Edo House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Blessing Agbebaku, has literally suspended three lawmakers over alleged plot to impeach him  and other Principal Officers Council (POC) of the house. 

The three suspended lawmakers are Mr Donald Okogbe( PDP, Akoko-Edo11) Bright Iyamu (PDP Orihonmwon South) and Adeh  Isibor, PDP, (Esan North East 1) 

At resumption of plenary on Monday, the Speaker alleged that the three suspended members were being influenced by external forces to cause chaos and remove the leadership of the house. 

He also alleged that some persons brought native doctors into the house at midnight on Wednesday, May 1, 2024 to make some demonic incantations and dropped charms in the assembly complex. 

Responding during the rowdy session, the three suspended lawmakers were seen screaming "Mr speaker you do not have the right to unilaterally suspend any member (s) of the house. 

" You must call for votes. Allow members vote on the matter'', the victims screamed.
