A former Commissioner for Information in Rivers state, Emmanuel Okah, has revealed that the purported impeachment of the Speaker of Rivers state House of Assembly, Amachree Otelemaba, was properly done by a quorum of the lawmakers as against claims that the impeachment was carried out by just five anti-Amaechi lawmakers.

Okah made this known on Channels TV Sunrise where he admitted that it is impossible for five lawmakers to impeach the Speaker.

He narrated how the House Leader, Chidi Lloyd-who battered another lawmaker in the ensuing violence- was part of those in the plenary session that impeached the Speaker.

According to him, the House leader led his faction out of the Assembly after the impeachment was properly conducted by the House to inform the Governor of the development.

He claimed the Governor who was not invited to the House, returned with the House leader and instigated violence.
