The Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Kola Oluwawole, has been impeached.
The Speaker was impeached together with his deputy this morning in a move spearheaded by three All Progressives Congress’ lawmakers with the support of some aggrieved Peoples Democratic Party members of the House.
The two were impeached by 14 members of the house.
Later, Mr Adeniran Alagbada representing Ise constituency was adopted as the speaker and Segundo Adewunmi became the deputy speaker .
Some members of the house members were also suspended
However the ex- Speaker Kola Oluwawole, has described his purported impeachment today as a rape on democracy and as the lowest level of lawlessness and illegality.
This was contained in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Stephen Gbadamosi, Oluwawole noting that those who carried out the illegality were allegedly provided police cover for them.
