Why Imo Assembly suspends three legislators

The Imo State House of Assembly has suspended three of its members over alleged legislative misconduct.

The suspended lawmakers included the representative of Ngor Okpala state constituency, Obinna Egu; the representative of Isu state constituency, Ngozi Obiefulu; and the representative of Ehime-Mbaino state constituency, Lawman Duruji.

The Speaker, Acho Ihim, announced the suspension of the legislators during a plenary on Thursday.

Duruji had shouted “point of order” during the plenary but the speaker did not sustain the order.

The suspension came on the heels of speculations that there were moves by some legislators to impeach the speaker.
