Lawmakers at the Ekiti State House of Assembly on Monday impeached the Speaker, Gboyega Aribisogan.
His impeachment was coming barely a week after he was elected as the speaker of the assembly.
The speaker was immediately replaced by a female lawmaker, Olubunmi Adelugba,
Seventeen out of the 25 members impeached the speaker and elected a new one.
The Assembly Complex was earlier sealed as members were embroiled in a controversy following the death of the former Speaker, Funminiyi Afuye.
66-year-old Afuye 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.
Meanwhile, Adelugba is the first female Speaker in the history of the Assembly since the return to democracy in 1999.
Until her appointment as a speaker, she was a Chief Whip of the Assembly. She was elected into the Ekiti Assembly in 2019
