Lawmakers on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party in Benue State House of Assembly have suspended seven members of the house tied to the All Progressives Congress.
According to them, the seven lawmakers were suspended over court contempt and for holding illegal plenary on Monday.
Those who suspended their colleagues in the APC were 19.
Concise News learned that the 19 members held their plenary at the old banquet hall of the Government House in Makurdi, the Benue capital.
They said the plenary by the APC lawmakers was illegal as they have disregarded the restraining order against the former speaker, Terkimbi Ikyange, and his executives.
APC lawmakers had earlier in the day moved a motion for the impeachment of Governor Samuel Ortom over alleged diversion of state funds and abuse of office.
It was also gathered that policemen stormed the Assembly, preventing 22 PDP lawmakers from gaining access to the complex.
A Benue State High court had, last week, gave an order restraining the impeached speaker of the Benue State House of Assembly, Ikyange, from parading himself as the Speaker of the House.
