The deputy speaker was impeached on Friday during an Emergency sitting held at the State Assembly complex in Lokoja, where three other principal officers were suspended.

In a motion of urgent importance read by Hon. Enema Paul, member representing (Dekina/Okura) State Constituency, 17 lawmakers signed the impeachment of Hon. Ahmed Mohammed and the suspension of three other principal officers in the house.
