Edo State House of Assembly has impeached its Speaker, Justin Okonoboh.
The lawmakers also suspended the deputy speaker, Elizabeth Ativie and majority leader, Foly Ogedengbe for three months.
He was immediately replaced by Kabiru Adjoto, while Victor Edoro was elected deputy speaker.
The new speaker explained why Okonobo was impeached.
The impeached speaker, however, has declared its impeachment illegal and announced the suspension of the new speaker and several other lawmakers who played key roles in the impeachment process.
