The Edo State House of Assembly has suspended three lawmakers for an alleged plot to impeach the Speaker and other principal officers.

The Speaker of the House, Blessing Agbebaku, announced the suspension at the resumption of plenary in Benin, the Edo State capital, on Monday, May 6, 2024.

Agbebaku said Donald Okogbe (PDP, Akoko-Edo11), Bright Iyamu (PDP, Orihonmwon South), and Adeh Isibor (PDP, Esan North East 1) were being used by some external forces to cause chaos to remove the leadership of the House.

The pronouncement led to a rowdy situation in the House as the lawmakers tried to challenge their suspension.

They said: “Mr Speaker, you don’t have the right to unilaterally suspend any member of the house.

“You must call for votes. Allow members to vote on the matter.”

The Speaker, thereafter, adjourned plenary abruptly.
