The Rivers State House of Assembly has suspended four of its members.

This followed the suspension of Edison Ehie, Leader of the House representing the Ahoada constituency, on Monday morning.

Other Assembly members suspended are Goodboy Sokari Goodboy, also representing Ahoada, Adolphus Timothy, representing Opobo/Nkoro, and Victor Oko-Jumbo, representing Bonny.

The Speaker of the House, Martins Amaewhule, announced the suspension of Ehie and four other members of the House after they were accused of masterminding the explosion that rocked the Assembly complex on Sunday night.

The House also announced the impeachment process of Governor Siminalayi Fubara over alleged misuse of power and misconduct.

The motion, however, did not go down well with loyalists of Fubara and Ehie, who went on a rampage, forcing the members to leave the Assembly complex.
