Tension In Imo As Okorocha Deputy's Impeachment Commences

The Imo State House of Assembly has commenced impeachment proceedings against the deputy governor, Eze Madumere.

The motion for his impeachment was moved by the Deputy Speaker, Ugonna Ozuruigbo after accusing him, among other things, of abandoning his duties and office as the state’s number two citizen for a long time.

The plenary was tension soaked while it lasted.

Armed security men have barricaded the entry and exit points of the complex.

The governor and deputy governor have been at his each other's neck for a while now.
