The Benue State House of Assembly has impeached Terkimbi Ikyange as its speaker.
Ikyange who is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was impeached after a motion of no confidence was moved by Honourable Richard Ujege, who represents Konshisha state constituency.
The move was backed by 21 members out of the 30-man Assembly.
The impeachment took place in the absence of the speaker but the clerk of the House was present at the plenary.

A new Deputy Speaker, Egli Johnson Ahubi, who represents Otukpo/Akpa state constituency was also elected.
