Edo Assembly Speaker Suspends 3 Lawmakers


Speaker of Edo House of Assembly, Hon Blessing Agbebaku yesterday literally suspended three lawmakers over an alleged plot to impeach him and other principal officers’ council (POC) of the legislature.

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

At resumption of plenary yesterday, Agbebaku 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,” they said.
