Commotion Everywhere, As House Speaker Shuts Down Assembly Complex, Escapes With The Mace

21 out of the 27 Lawmakers in the Imo State House of Assembly, have on Wednesday, suspended the Speaker of the House, Acho Ihim.

The suspension of Ihim, came after he had shut down the ongoing plenary and escaped with the mace, after reading a letter announcing the lifting of the suspension slammed on the 27 Local Government Chairmen of the 27 LGAs of the State, by the Lawmakers, last week.

The 21 Lawmakers, immediately announced Chiendu Offor, of the Action Alliance, AA, as the temporary Speaker.

They equally announced the suspension of the Majority Leader of the House, Lugard Osuji, and elected Lloyd Chukwuemeka, in his place.

The Acting Speaker, who later addressed Journalists, said that the 21 Lawmakers had earlier served impeachment notices on Ihim and Osuji.

Ihim in a bid to frustrate his colleagues from removing him, had to allegedly order his Aides to switch off the generating set supplying electricity to the Complex, but the Lawmakers who were visibly embittered by his action, spurred to go on with the business of the day.

Trouble started after the Lawmakers raised an objection to the letter announcing the lifting of the suspension of the suspended 27 LGA Chairmen.

The Lawmakers quoted Order 15 of the House Rules, which enabled the Lawmakers to contribute to it before the Speaker rules, but Ihim said that no Lawmaker was allowed to contribute to the matter.

The Lawmakers were seen putting final touches to the impeachment notices, at the time of filing in this report.
