By The Citizen

The was an uproar in Ebonyi State Government House, Monday morning, around 11:00 am over the impeachment of the Embattled Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Chukwuma Nwazunku.

The House members who carried out the impeachment made attempts to stop the embattled Speaker from seeing the Governor Martin Elechi and also prevented  him from attending a function at the Exco chambers of the Government House.

The timely intervention of security operatives averted what could have led to a bloody confrontation. The erstwhile  speaker was later seen at a corner shielded away from other assembly members.

Meanwhile, the 18 members of  state House of Assembly who had impeached Hon. Nwazunku at 6:30 am also led a delegation to meet with the state governor.

Addressing newsmen,  Hon Enyi C Enyi, reprenting Ezza North West said that the new Speaker, Hon Helen Obasi representing Abakaliki South remains the authentic Speaker and the choice of the people. Vanguard
