The suspension of the Lawmaker in some quarters had also been linked to anti-party activities in the last Saturday House of Assembly election.

This is not the first time the state assembly is suspending some of its members. Recall that the north central state legislative body removed its deputy speaker and three other principal officers last year.

It also suspended Okene local government chairman last year.
