The Edo State House of Assembly on Wednesday impeached the deputy speaker, Yekini Idiaye.
The House of Assembly elected in his place, Roland Asoro who represents Orhionmwon II state constituency.
The state assembly has been caught in the middle of the political fight between the state governor, Godwin Obaseki and a former national chairman of the APC, Adam’s Oshiomhole.
The governor’s defection to the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) from the ruling APC has further aggravated tensions in the state house of assembly.
