Mr. Igbuya was impeached alongside the Majority Leader, Tim Ohwofere who was suspended indefinitely at the sitting which was presided over by the Deputy Speaker, Mr. Friday Osanebi.
The impeached speaker has since been replaced by Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, the lawmaker representing Okpe Constituency while Mr. Johnson Erijo was elected as the new Majority Leader.
At the end of the sitting, the new speaker and other house members proceeded to the Government House to intimate the state governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa of the developments and changes in the house leadership.
