Deputy Governor of Imo State, Mr. Jude Agbaso has been impeached by the State’s House of 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.
