Twenty-one out of the 27 lawmakers of the Imo State House of Assembly on Wednesday suspended the Speaker, Acho Ihim.

The suspension of Ihim came after he had adjourned the ongoing plenary and escaped with the maze after reading a letter announcing the lifting of the suspension slammed on the 27 Local Government chairmen of the 27 LGA of the state the lawmakers last week.

The 21 lawmakers immediately announced Chiendu Offor(Onuimo) of the Action Alliance as the temporary speaker.

They equally announced the suspension of the majority leader of the house,Lugard Osuji and elected Lloyd Chukwuemeka ,(Owerri North)in his place.

The acting speaker who letter addressed journalists, said that the 21 lawmakers had served impeachment notices on Ihim and Osuji.

Ihim in a bid to frustrate his colleagues from removing him had to allegedly order his aides to switch off the generating set supplying electricity to the complex but the lawmakers who were visibly embittered with his action spurred to go on with the business of the day.

Trouble had started after the lawmakers raised objection to the letter announcing the lifting of the suspension of the suspended 27 LGA chairmen.

The lawmakers had quoted the order 15 of the house rule which enabled the lawmakers to contribute to it before the speaker rules,but Ihim said that no lawmaker was allowed to contribute to the matter.
