Kogi State House of Assembly has suspended nine of its members on allegation bordering on terrorism.

This was after the House Speaker, Mathew Kolawole, read a letter from the state governor, Yahaya Bello, alleging that the lawmakers engaged in terrorism acts based on security report.

The Deputy Speaker, Alfa Rabiu Momoh, representing Ankpa II State Constituency, while contributing to the debate on the allegation levelled against them, supported the suspension of the lawmakers, saying that the state is bigger than any personal interest and that lawmakers should not be found contravening the law.

Also, Collins Musa, representing Omala State Constituency, aligned himself with the Deputy Speaker, saying that issue that borders on terrorism is too great to be swept under the carpet.

The House, therefore, placed the nine lawmakers on suspension until investigation is concluded.

Similarly, the House has placed on suspension seven council chairmen on allegation of electoral violence. Also a seven-man ad-hoc committee, headed by the Deputy Speaker, Momoh, was set up by the House to investigate those on suspension.
