Police invade Edo House of Assembly
<!– Frank Okiye, Speaker, Edo House of Assembly –>
The motive of the police was not clear, as this is a developing story.
Idiaye was impeached on Wednesday during a plenary session of just 10 members of the Assembly out of the elected 24.
The speaker, Frank Okiye was elected by the 10 members, in an inauguration that took place at night last year, and endorsed by Governor Godwin Obaseki.
The excluded 14 members have not been part of the assembly since then and the minority members had even gone further to declare their seats vacant.
But matters came to a head on Wednesday, when Idiaye was impeached.
The lawmaker representing Akoko-Edo Constituency I and four other members of the Assembly on Monday pledged their support to the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
Those who joined Idiaye are Hon. Emmanuel Agbaje, Akoko-Edo Constituency II; Hon. Nosayaba Okunbor, Orhiomwon East Constituency; Hon. Dumez Ugiagbe, Member-elect, Ovia North East Constituency I; and Mr. Hon. Vincent Uwadiae, Member-elect, Ovia North East Constituency II.
