The Majority Leader of the Zamfara State assembly, Alhaji Salisu Musa Tsafe, had been impeached, following his involvement in a fight with the state governor's driver, over a lady, in the public.

Reading the outcome of the committee's findings, chairman of the committee, Alhaji Isah Abdul-Mumuni told the House that the duo were invited to testify, including other witnesses.

He said the committee established the fact that both the lawmaker and the governor's driver fought over the lady in question.

The committee which decribed the incident as embarrassing not just to their persons but the entire state, recommended that, Salisu Musa Tsafe be impeached as the House Majority Leader and also be suspended from the business of the state legislation till the end of this legislative period.

The committee further recommended that the governor's senior driver, Malam Idris, be replaced with another person, even as it declared that henceforth, any person who would become a driver to the state governor, his deputy, state Chief Judge and all other important government functionaries in the state, must undergo security screening to avert such embarrassing moment.
