The Kogi state House of Assembly this morning, impeached the Speaker of the Assembly, Abdullahi Bello, his Deputy and ten other principal officers.
The Kogi state House of Assembly has been in disarray in the last few months over plan by some aggrieved members to remove the Speaker and other principal officers of the House. The Speaker has been having a running battle with some lawmakers who had been plotting to remove him from office.
