The leader said findings of the committee indicted both Aleke and Odah, and that there was need for the House to sanction them to serve as a deterrent to others that might indulge in similar acts in future.
He alleged that Aleke who was a member of the committee became a’a green snake in a green grass’, by allegedly conniving with Odah to sabotage the assignment; an act he said was against the House rule.
He urged the House to suspend both Aleke and Odah pending when the determination of the allegations against them.
Meanwhile, there was a mild drama as the member representing Ezza South State Constituency, Hon Chris Usulor, opposed the Speaker.
He requested that there should be headcount of the lawmakers at the plenary to know those in support or against the suspension of Aleke, before he makes his ruling.
But Nwifuru quickly told him that his request was against the House rule.
Aleke was not present in the chamber when his suspension took place on Friday.
On whether the suspension of Aleke had any connection with his alleged refusal to decamp to the APC with Governor Umahi, the Chairman, House Committee on Information, and Member representing Ishielu South, Hon Arinze Chukwu, said it had nothing to do with defection.
