Heavy shooting at Imo state House of Assembly after six lawmakers of the house were suspended.
The suspension of the lawmakers was announced on the floor of the assembly by the speaker of the House, Paul Emeziem.
The speaker said that their suspension was based on “conducting themselves in an unparliamentary manner.”
It was gathered that it was after the plenary had been concluded on the suspension of the lawmakers that there were gunshots in the air, which was said to be from the security operatives. Both the lawmakers and workers were seen scampering for safety.
According to reports, some of the suspended lawmakers stormed the hallowed chambers and protested against their suspension
Among the suspended lawmakers, four are members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the others are two members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The suspended members included Uche Ogbuagu (APC, Ikeduru) Dominic Ezerioha (APC, Oru West) Micheal Crown (APC, Ihitte Uboma) Kennedy Ibe (APC, Obowo) Anyadike Nwosu ( PDP, Ezinihitte Mbaise) and Phillip Ejiogu (PDP, Owerri North).
Also, the Speaker has sacked the Chief Whip of the House, Arthur Eqwim (Ideato North) and replaced him with Obinna Okwara (Nkwerre).
In the same development, the Speaker, Emeziem, dissolved all the standing committees in the House.
