The House of Representatives has begun its probe of the disgruntled members of the Peoples Democratic Party who lost the battle for the leadership of the minority caucus of the house.
The PDP members being probed are Kingsley Chinda, Toby Okechukwu, Umar Barde and Muraina Ajibola.
During the plenary session on Wednesday, a PDP member, Ben Igbakpa, raised a point of order calling for a probe.
The Deputy Speaker, Ahmed Wase, who presided over the plenary referred the matter to the House Committee on Ethics and Privileges for investigation.
The conglomerate of opposition parties in the House had appointed Ndudi Elumelu as Minority Leader, Toby Okechukwu as Deputy Minority Leader, Gideon Gwani as Minority Whip, and Adesegun Adekoya as Deputy Minority Whip.
However, Chinda had signed at least two statements recently, as the PDP Caucus Leader; Chukwuma Onyema as Deputy Caucus Leader; Umar Barde as Caucus Whip; and Muraina Ajibola as the Deputy Caucus Whip.
