The Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Blessing Agbebaku, has taken immediate action by suspending three lawmakers amid allegations of an impeachment plot against him and other Principal Officers Council (POC) members.

The suspended lawmakers, Donald Okogbe (PDP Akoko-Edo 11), Bright Iyamu (PDP Orihonmwon South), and Adeh Isibor (Esan North East 1), faced suspension during a session at the assembly complex on Monday. Agbebaku maintained that these members, allegedly supported by external forces, were instigating trouble to oust the house leadership.

Furthermore, Agbebaku claimed that individuals brought native doctors into the assembly complex on May 1, 2024, at midnight to perform demonic rituals and leave charms, further escalating tensions.

In response, the three suspended lawmakers vehemently rejected their suspension during the chaotic session.

“Mr speaker you do not have the right to unilaterally suspend any member (s) of the house.

“You must call for votes. Allow members to vote on the matter,” the affected lawmakers shouted.
