The Edo State House of Assembly on Tuesday swore in Justin Okonoboh, member representing Igueben constituency as the new deputy speaker.
The Deputy Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Victor Edoror, was impeached on Monday.
The lawmaker representing Oredo East, Osaigbovo Iyoha, said the impeachment notice was signed by 16 members, out of the 24 lawmakers in the House.
The lawmakers accused Edoror, representing Esan Central constituency, of corruption, high-handedness, and desperation.
The impeachment led to a pandemonium in the assembly complex as security operatives shot in the air to disperse angry supporters of the embattled member who allegedly attempted to stop the impeachment.
