The deputy speaker of the Edo state House of Representatives, Hon Yekini Idiaye, has been impeached.
He was impeached on Wednesday during a plenary session of the Assembly in Benin City.
His impeachment comes few days after he, alongside four other lawmakers in the state, declared their support for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
The lawmakers said their decision was to remain in the now opposition party in the State on whose platform they were elected.
The lawmakers also alleged that the state executive led by the PDP flag bearer has made the legislature irrelevant.
