Edo Speaker Suspends Three Members Over Alleged Impeachment Plot

The Edo State House of Assembly suspended three members on Monday amid allegations of a plot to impeach the leadership.

Speaker Rt. Hon.Blessing Sheriff Agbebaku announced the indefinite suspension during a rowdy plenary session.

One of the suspended members, Hon. Bright Iyamu Orhionmwion South Constituency, was allegedly captured on CCTV performing what the speaker described as fetish sacrifices at the House of Assembly Complex last Thursday.

The relics of cola nut and other substances used in the ritual suggested ulterior motives of the plans for the impeachment, according to the speaker.

It was also revealed that 14 members had appended their signatures to impeach the speaker before plenary on Monday, a move that was disrupted during plenary session.

The other suspended members are Hon. Isibor Emankhu Addeh Esan North East Constituency One and Hon. Donald Okogbe Akoko Edo Constituency Two.

The suspension sparked an uproar, with Hon. Addeh Emankhu Isibor resisting the pronouncement and other members voicing concerns.

The plenary was adjourned to Tuesday, May 7, 2024, amid the tension.

The incident has raised concerns about the sanctity of the House and the motivations behind the alleged impeachment plot.

With the 2024 gubernatorial election approaching, it is hoped that normalcy will be restored to create a harmonious environment for the Assembly to function effectively.”
