Councillors impeach Nasarawa LG chairman

The Chairman, Obi Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, Muhammad Oyimugah, has been impeached by the legislative arm of the local government.

It was gathered that security operatives, including the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, have been drafted to the local government secretariat to forestall any breakdown of law and order.

The Speaker of the council, Luka Ishaq, on Monday in Lafia, said the impeachment followed the chairman’s involvement in the mismanagement of the council’s fund.

However, when contacted, the council chairman told reporters that he was still in charge.
