The Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Frank Okiye, has been impeached.
He has been replaced by Marcus Onobun from Esan West Constituency as the new Speaker, who immediately announced the dissolution of all standing committees of the Assembly.
The impeachment is said to have created confusion with Governor Obaseki who was apparently caught unaware of the plot, allegedly insisting on reversal of the action and a return to the status quo. Details later.
