Court sacks two Enugu House of Reps members

18 October 2016, 21:27

Abuja - A Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday sacked two House of Representatives members from Enugu State from the National Assembly.

The court ordered the two members to vacate their seats and refund all emoluments they have earned back to National Assembly's purse, reports Daily Trust.

The affected lawmakers are: Hon. Stella Ngwu from Igbo-Etiti/Uzo-Uwani Federal Constituency and Hon. Dennis Nnmachi Agbo from Igbo-Eze North/Udenu Federal Constituency.

The court declared that Dr. Gabriel Okafor is the rightful winner of  Igbo-Eze North/Udenu Federal Constituency seat election, while Hon. Chijioke Ugwu won the Egbo-Eze North/Udenu Federal Constituency, Enugu State in 2015.
