The Speaker allegedly learned about the plot to overthrow him after the lawmakers returned from a N750 million jamboree training session in Atlanta, Georgia.

The news of the plot galvanized the House leadership who, acting as one, moved quickly to suspend Ajudua and Erijo from their positions.

The suspension of the two legislators followed a motion moved by the Majority Leader, Tim Owhefere.

The motion, which was unanimously adopted by the House, was seconded by the Minority Leader, Festus Okoh.
