Imo State House of Assembly has suspended another member, Donatus Onuigwe, representing Oru West constituency.

The House accused him of indulging in “un-parliamentary misconduct.”

Majority Leader of the assembly, Lugard Osuji, raised the motion for Onuigwe’s suspension and was supported by Ezediora Uzoma, who represents Oguta constituency.

The suspension was said to be part of its process of re-engineering and enforcing discipline among the lawmakers.

Osuji had suffered the same fate a few months ago, before he was recalled and reinstated.

Speaker of the assembly, Acho Ihim, directed the investigating committee headed by Osuji, to probe the allegation against Onuigwe and submit its findings in seven days.

It would be recalled that the state assembly, which has representatives from the 27 constituencies of the state, had earlier suspended four members indefinitely about a fortnight ago.

The suspended lawmakers were also accused of conducting themselves in an un-parliamentary manner. They are yet to be recalled.
