Written by Zandas Okeke on July 30, 2018
Imo State House of Assembly complex witnessed high level of activities as Assembly members on Monday evening impeached Deputy Governor, Eze Madumere.
The development was sequel to an order of the state high court on Monday which restrained the lawmakers and the state chief Judge, Paschal Nnadi, of any further action on the impeachment proceedings against the embattled deputy governor until the matter was decided by the court.
Journalists and visitors were barred from accessing the legislative chambers as the lawmakers impeached the Deputy Governor Eze Madumere.
The impeachment motion was moved by majority leader, Lugard Osuji, who represents Owerri Municipal; and seconded by Victor Onyewuchi, representing Owerri West LGA.
Nineteen other lawmakers supported the motion which ousted Madumere, and Imolites are left with a jigsaw of trying to understand the impeachment of the Deputy governor amidst a court case..
Meanwhile a federal Court has restrained INEC, All Progressive Congress and its National Chairman from conducting any congress in the State until all pending cases are dealt with.
