The speaker of Edo State House of Assembly, Blessing Agbebaku, has summarily suspended 3 legislators over allegations bordering on disrupting the house leadership and use of ‘juju’ to destabilise the chambers.

The Speaker who is a member of the state ruling party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Monday made the announcement which affected Donald Okogbe (PDP, Akoko-Edo II), Bright Iyamu (PDP, Orhionmwon II), and Adeh Isibor (All Progressives Congress, APC, Esan Northeast I).

The trio were accused of being under the guidance of external forces to put in place plans to ruin the house’s efforts. Agbebaku said that some persons had entered the assembly complex at night on May 1st workers day and performed spiritual rites witha native doctor, leaving charms behind.

He was however forced to adjorun the plenary as the announcement led to protests by the Lawmakers mentioned.
They said: “Mr. Speaker, you do not have the right to unilaterally suspend any member of this House. You must call for votes. Allow members of the Assembly to vote on the matter.”
