For the Sir Jude Agbaso, the embattled Deputy Governor of Imo State, the much-dreaded moment is finally here: He is to be impeached for allegedly demanding and collecting N458 million as gratification from J-PROS, one of the Contractors handling Sam Mbakwe Road in Owerri, the state capital.

This was disclosed this evening by Hon. (Dr.) Acho Ihim, Chairman, Committee on Information of the Imo State House of Assembly.

In a statement released this evening in Owerri, Hon. Ihim disclosed that the House has resolved to serve Sir Agbaso notice of impeachment through a substituted means.

This, he said, became necessary as Sir Jude Agbaso has neither shown up in his office nor in his official residence since his indictment by the House, thus making it difficult to serve him the notice of impeachment unanimously voted by the House. The House has consequently resolved to serve the deputy governor through other means – electronic and print media – and pasting such at his official residence after a plenary session, which held today.

The statement restated that no external force will be allowed to influence the lawmakers while performing their constitutional duties.
