The Imo state House of Assembly on Monday started proceedings to impeach the Deputy Governor, Eze Madumere.
The lawmakers are accusing the deputy governor of gross misconduct.
The Deputy Speaker, Ugonna Ozuruigbo, who moved the motion that the impeachment process be served on the embattled deputy governor, accused him, among other things, of abandoning his duties and office as the state’s number two citizen for a long time.
Armed security men have barricaded the entry and exit points of the complex.
To this effect, a 6-man panel probe committee has been set up to investigate the allegations and report back to the House within seven days.
More to come…
