Oludare Kadiri has been removed from office as the Deputy Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly be fellow lawmakers for alleged misconduct.
Kadiri was removed during a plenary held at the plenary session held at the assembly complex in Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, on Thursday, after an ad-hoc committee report indicted him for causing public disturbance.
Kadiri was on 26 February arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for an alleged assault after he reportedly led suspected hoodlums to invade the residence of the Secretary to the State Government, Tokunbo Talabi, in Oru-Ijebu in the Ijebu North Local Government Area of the state during the revalidation exercise of the All Progressives Congress in the state (APC).
Olakunle Oluomon, Speaker of the Assembly, constituted a five-member committee to look into the allegation.
The committee’s report subsequently recommended him for impeachment as he was found guilty of the allegations levelled against him.
Following the presentation of the report, 19 lawmakers out of 26 members of the assembly supported the motion for the removal of Kadiri from office.
Oluomon subsequently announced Kadiri’s removal from his position.
The former deputy speaker represents Ijebu-North II state constituency.
