The Kebbi State House of Assembly has impeached its speaker, Honourable Sama Ilah Abdulmuminu Kamba, and his deputy, Muhammad Buhari Alieru.
According to a letter signed by the clerk of the House, Usman Ahmad Bunza, and made available to journalists, the duo was impeached on Tuesday by a two-third majority of the House.
The letter noted that the two house leaders were found to have committed impeachable offences, hence, the reason to relieve them of their post with immediate effect.
Although their offences were not disclosed in the letter, the clerk said the impeached leaders would be replaced by Muhammad Abubakar Lolo as the new speaker, while Honourable Usman Ankwai Zuru would assume the role of the deputy speaker.
Meanwhile, armed policemen were seen at the entrance of the state assembly to forestall of any breakdown of law and order.
Also, the impeached lawmakers could not be reached at the time of filing this report.
