The Speaker, Edo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Francis Okiye, was on Monday impeached by members of the Assembly.
The Speaker was said to have been impeached by nine out of ten members who sat during the House plenary on Monday.
His impeachment followed a motion moved by the Majority Leader, Hon. Henry Okhurobo during the brief sitting.
The members said he was impeached due to his alleged high-handedness and other allegations.
The lawmakers thereafter elected Hon. Marcus Onobun, representing Esan West state constituency as the new Speaker of the Assembly.
