Eight APC members in the Benue state House of Assembly this morning served a notice of impeachment to the state governor, Samuel Ortom.
Spokesperson of the eight lawmakers told journalists that the House has commenced impeachment proceedings against Governor Ortom on the allegations of diversion of state funds and abuse of office. The spokesperson added that 15 lawmakers have been suspended for six months.
The 15 newly suspended lawmakers are part of the 22 lawmakers who impeached the House Speaker, Terkimbi Ikyange, last week.
This development comes after Governor Ortom anounced his defection from APC to PDP.
