The Benue State House of Assembly has suspended the 7 lawmakers who held an illegal sitting under the leadership of the impeached and suspended Speaker with the help of the police. The lawmakers were placed on a 6 months suspension via a decision in the presence of 18 members with 4 notices of absence.
The House also called on the international community to beam its searchlight on the impunity (use of force by the police to prevent members from sitting) going on in Benue State.
It will be recalled that a court in Makurdi presided over by Justice Adam Onum few days ago gave a restraining order to the impeached speaker to stop parading himself as the speaker of the BSHA.
The suspended members of the Benue State House of Assembly are:
Terkimbi ikyange -(Impeached speaker, Suspended member)
Adanyi Benjamin –
