Breaking: Court delivers judgment on impeachment of former Kogi deputy governor

The impeachment of Simon Achuba, a former Kogi deputy governor by the State House of Assembly is illegal, null and void, a High Court sitting in Lokoja, the Kogi state capital has declared 

Delivering the judgment on Thursday, February 27, Justice John Olorunfemi said Achuba’s impeachment from office by the Kogi State Assembly is a violation of the constitution and the subsequent nomination of Edward Onoja as the deputy governor, did not follow due process

Justice Olorunfemi described the action of the Kogi State House of Assembly as a constitutional coup, hatched and executed in a democracy explaining further that the action is contrary to Section 188 subsection 8, a section that stopped the Assembly from further action having discovered that the former deputy governor was not found wanting by the panel.
