Men of the Nigeria Police Force, Army, Department of Security Services and Civil Defence Corps today took over the complex of the Imo state House of Assembly located at New Owerri after there were speculations that some lawmakers numbering about 19 had perfected plans to impeach the Speaker, Acho Ihim; and his deputy, Ugonna Ozurigbo, during Plenary.
While the security agents barricaded all entrances leading in and out of the complex, only the lawmakers, media men and Assembly workers were allowed entry into the complex.
It was gathered that the plot to impeach the Speaker and his deputy was being hatched by some lawmakers who want to get at the two principal officers in order to have their ways in determining who emerges the next Speaker of the 9th Assembly.
But during the Plenary, the Speaker directed that five suspended lawmakers be invited to interface with other lawmakers on April 16 during Executive Session.
He issued the invitation after Chika Madumere (Nkwerre) had moved a motion for the recall of the five suspended lawmakers.
