Penpushing further recalled that, Ikyange, who remained in the APC despite recent mass defection of his colleagues to the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), was said to have been impeached because he was no longer in the majority party.
It was gathered that, some of the majority House members who impeached the Speaker insisted it had nothing to do with his status as a minority lawmaker.
Penpushing reports that, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmakers, last week said they were compelled to use the Government House in Makurdi to conduct legislative businesses after security agencies locked the parliament.
Meanwhile, as at the time of this report, the former Governor, George Akume, alleged to be the arrowhead of the impeachment move and assembly take over by the eight lawmakers could not be reach for comments.
