Ondo State House of Assembly on Wednesday suspended the deputy speaker, Irioju Ogundeji, and another member of the House, Adewale Williams, for alleged unruly behaviour.

Both lawmakers were among the nine lawmakers that kicked against impeachment move of Deputy Governor Agboola Ajayi.

Mr Ajayi was served impeachment notice on Tuesday after he left the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Confirming their suspension, Deputy-Minority Leader of the State House of Assembly, Hon. Tomide Akinribido said the House, “I got wind of the illegal suspension of members who took a firm stand against politically-motivated impeachment yesterday.

“I told the Speaker to make sure my name is included in the suspension list, but he refused. I will write him officially on that tomorrow.

“They also illegally suspended the only female member of the house of assembly, Hon. Favour Tomomewo, for refusing to be intimidated and do a bidding against her conscience. It’s a sad day for democracy and constitutionality,” he added.
