Members of the Edo House of Assembly have impeached the Speaker, Francis Okiye.

 

According to Punch, his removal 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 members who were present during a brief sitting on Monday.

 

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