The Ekiti State Assembly Speaker, Gboyega Aribisogan, has been impeached by members of the House.

Aribisogan was removed on Monday as Olubunmi Adelugba was elected as the new Speaker.

Seventeen out of the 25 members impeached the Speaker and elected a new one.

The Assembly Complex was earlier sealed by Security agents to prevent a break down of order following the death of the former Speaker, Funminiyi Afuye.

66-year-old Afuye had died at the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital on October 19, after suffering cardiac arrest.

A month after his demise, the parliament held an election and Aribisogan, who is the representative of Ikole 1 Constituency in the Assembly and a two-term lawmaker, emerged.
