The Kwara State House of Assembly has suspended Jimoh Raheem, member representing Ilorin South Constituency, over alleged contempt and abuse of privilege.
Agboola, who is the only Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker in the house, was suspended on Tuesday, sequel to a motion without notice moved by the house Leader, Abubakar Mogaji Olawoyin, during plenary.
Olawoyin, while leading the debate on the motion, said the assembly is an institution, and as such must be respected.
The house leader accused Agboola of dishonouring the house by calling on the masses to stage a protest against the government and the house of assembly on a radio programme.
He stated that such act at this period of insecurity could lead to chaos in the state.
Olumide Awolola, lawmaker representing Isin, in his contribution, said the derogatory language against the house by the lawmaker should not be condoned.
He urged the house to make proper investigation on the matter before taking any action.
Speaker of the house, Yakubu Salihu Danladi, assured the members of adequate investigation and directed the house committee on ethics, privileges and judiciary to conduct investigation on the matter and report its finding as soon as possible.
He also directed Agboola to seize from attending plenary pending the conclusion of the investigation.
Reacting to the issue, Agboola stated that the suspension is dead on arrival and cannot stand.
He added that he would make his next line of action know soon.
