The Oyo State House of Assembly has impeached the Deputy Governor, Rauf Olaniyan, for misconduct.
The members of the House of Assembly removed him around 11:30 am on Monday.
However, the Deputy Governor recently defected to the opposition party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Olaniyan, earlier, dragged the State’s Assembly to court after the move for his impeachment was raised.
The judge held that the impeachment move initiated by the lawmakers had not violated the constitution in any way, thereby dismissing the suit on July 14.
The court gave the lawmakers the go-ahead to continue with the impeachment process.
