This followed a resolution of the house at its Tuesday plenary in Owerri.

The Speaker, Mr Paul Emeziem (APC-Onuimo) who announced the impeachment of Iwuanyanwu, failed, however, to state why he was removed.

The house also adopted a resolution recalling six lawmakers that were suspended on July 8 for unparliamentary conduct.

This followed the adoption of the report of its ad hoc committee set up to investigate the allegations at the committee of the whole house.
