Update: Impeachment Plot against the Speaker of the House of Assembly, Delta State Revealed.

More facts have emerged on why of the Delta State House of Assembly placed a three months  suspension to two of her members, Prince Erijo Johnson and Mrs Pat Ajudua on Tuesday.

Reports  revealed that the move to suspend the two members was done quickly to avert an impending impeachment of the Assembly Speaker, Hon Monday Igbuya and other principal officials.

According to a reliable source, the former speaker of the house, Hon. Victor Ochei, had during the Assembly members training, invited some lawmakers said to be his loyalist to his Philadelphia resident and lobbied them to change the House leadership.

"What happened today was as a result of a botched impeachment plan. Ochei invited some lawmakers to his
Philadelphia resident during the Atlanta visit and that was where he lobbied our lawmakers to perfect a change in leadership. They also held other meetings in Atlanta."

The source listed the lawmakers present at the meeting with Hon. Ochei tobinclude, Hon. Peter Onwusanya, Hon. Ruben Izeze, Hon. Adophus Ojo, Hon.Angela Nwaka, and Hon. Azuka Azaka. Others were, Hon. Samuel Mariere, Hon. Johnson Erijo, Hon. Pat Ajudua, and Hon. Denis Omovie.

However, sensing that the impeachment was about to be moved on yesterday (Tuesday), Igbuya and his loyalist quickly handed a suspension for insubordination to Hon. Erijo and Pat Ajudua.

The source further added.
THE PRESS learned the house suspended only Erijo and Pat Ajudua in order not to be a public outcry in the state and protests by their constituents as other lawmakers are in constant touch with their constituents.

If yesterday’s impeachment plot had sailed through, Marieri would have emerged Speaker, Onwusanya Deputy Speaker, while Erijo would have become the Majority Leader.
