BREAKING NEWS: Deputy Governor of Imo State impeached. via [@trends_ng]

Information reaching us now has it that the Deputy
Governor, Imo State, Mr. Jude Agbaso has been
impeached by the State House of Assembly.

The Deputy Governor was impeached barely hours
after the High Court dismissed the suit by the Deputy
Governor of Imo State, Mr. Jude Agbaso, asking it to
stop his impeachment by the state Assembly.

Twenty-five out of the 26 members of the Imo State
House of Assembly approved the impeachment.
His impeachment is coming after a prolonged battle
over the allegation that he demanded the sum of
N417 million from a contractor in the state. Mr.
Agbaso has consistently denied the allegation.
Mr. Agbaso had earlier approached the court praying
it to restrain the state lawmakers from proceeding
with the impeachment process which began three
weeks ago.

He also prayed the court to restrain the Nigerian
Police from harassing him or acting upon the
recommendations of the House of Assembly against
him.
Details will be given in later.
