How Edo Speaker was sacked by APC, PDP lawmakers

*he is violently greedy, has 6 cases with EFCC-new speaker
*300 thugs harass people with gunshots, beat up journalists

There was pandemonium at the Edo State House of Assembly Tuesday when thugs numbering about 300 invaded the hallowed chambers, shooting sporadically and in the process injuring 6 persons.

Trouble started when Hon. Folly Ogedegbe, the majority leader moved the motion for impeachment of the speaker, Hon. Victor Edoror and the Deputy Speaker, Hon. Bright Osayande.

The motion, which was seconded by Hon. Gani Audu representing Etsako West 1 reads in parts, “We the underlisted and undersigned honourable members representing the various constituencies in the Edo State House of Assembly have on this day 3rd of May 2016 have resolved to impeach our speaker, Hon. Chief Victor Edoror Tiger and the Deputy Speaker Hon. Osayande for acts of gross misconduct.

Speaker ex-tempore, Hon. Patrick Iluobe was appointed to preside the business of the day where the new speaker, Hon. Mrs. Elizabeth Ativie representing Uhuwode was appointed and Dr. Joseph Okonoboh, representing Igueben was appointed as Deputy Speaker.
Immediately the new speaker was sworn in, the impeached speaker and his deputy walked into the chamber in company of the thugs shooting sporadically to scare people out of the chambers, in the process a lot of people sustained gunshot wounds.

Friday Otabo,Edo State correspondent to Nation newspapers was severally assaulted at the office of the impeached speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Mr Victor Edoror by some thugs loyal to him after interview session with news men in his office.

Mr Otabor,who recently shaved his hairs as part of tradition of Benin men to mourn the transited Oba, received some resounding slaps from the thugs. Meanwhile, venue of the Assembly, as well as Ring Road area was tense as it was characterised with sporadic gunshots, exchange of blows and tear-gas.

Though still claiming to be a Speaker, with only eight members whom he presided over, the impeached speaker who looked traumatized adjourned sitting till tomorrow.

However, Jungle Journalist™ gathered revealed that the new leaders and faction led by the new Speaker, Mrs Elizabeth Ativie had been received and welcomed by the Comrade Adams Oshiomhole

Addressing journalists immediately after the fracas, the new speaker Hon. Mrs. Ativie said the members can no longer tolerate the greedy nature of the speaker.

She said Edoror has up to six different financial cases with the EFCC and the members cannot continue to allow such indecent person to lead the House.

She therefore said that a five member committee headed by Kabiru Adjoto representing Akoko-Edo 1 will investigate the financial recklessness of the impeached speaker from June 2015 till May 3rd.

She said if found wanting at the end of the three months when the committee will submit their report, he will be handed over to the appropriate authority.

Also speaking, Hon. Adjoto Kabiru said the impeached speaker is violently corrupt and is fond of embezzling government money just the way the red lipped squirrel searches for palm kernels even while it is eating one.

“As it is today, Edoror has a lot of EFCC cases hanging on his neck, you media men can go and verify this. We cannot afford to have a speaker that is been investigated by the EFCC because of his corrupt nature. As earlier mentioned by our new speaker, Edoror has a corrupt tendency, enough is enough, that is why members of the House today signed impeachment notice against him. As we speak today, both APC and PDP members in the House signed the impeachment notice against him”.

16 members signed the impeachment notice that circulated to journalists immediately after the house proceedings.
