The drama started after the Imo state House of Assembly speaker, Acho Ihim read out a letter announcing the lifting of the suspension placed on the 27 Local Government Chairmen of the 27 LGA of the state by the lawmakers last week.
The lawmakers who tried to raise objection to the letter where hindered by Ihim who said no lawmaker is allowed to contribute on the matter.
This contravenes the order 15 of the house rule which enabled the lawmakers to contribute to it before the speaker rules.
It was reported that twenty-one out of 27 lawmakers of the assembly suspended Ihim after he announced the lifting of the suspension placed on the LGA Chairmen.
In a bid to prevent them from impeaching him, he allegedly ordered his aides to switch off the generating set supplying electricity to the complex.
His action provoked the lawmakers the more and they collectively agreed to continue with the plenary.
Sahara Reporters reports that at the time of filing this report, the lawmakers have put finishing touches to his impeachment notice.
