The Ekiti State House of Assembly has suspended the impeached chief whip of the House, Sunday Akinniyi, who represents Ikere constituency II.
The latest development was sequel to the submission of the report of an ad hoc disciplinary committee of the House, headed by Hon Fajemilehin Ayodele.
Allegations levelled against the lawmaker included violent conduct against other members, absenteeism, sleeping on duty, gross abuse of office, anti-party activities, and engaging in activities capable of bringing down the dignity of the House.
Hon Fajemilehin disclosed that all efforts to get the lawmaker to defend himself proved abortive due to his alleged refusal to honour the invitation of the committee.
Members present at plenary aligned with the report of the committee and called for appropriate disciplinary measure against the lawmaker.
