There was chaos in the Edo State House of Assembly, as the Speaker Mr Victor Edoror, and his Deputy have been impeached by lawmakers in the state on Tuesday, May 3. The leaders of the Edo parliament were impeached for some alleged misconduct. Mrs Elizabeth Ative has been elected as the Speaker following Edoror’s removal.
Following the election of the new leadership of the House, the impeached Speaker and his Deputy walked into the chamber in company of the suspected hoodlums who shot sporadically to scare people out and in the process, about six persons sustained various degrees of gunshot injuries. In her acceptance speech, the new Speaker, Hon (Mrs) Ativie, said the members can no longer tolerate the greedy nature of the former Speaker.
