A State High Court in Lokoja on Wednesday declared null and void the impeachment of the former Deputy Governor of Kogi State, Simon Achuba who was removed by the State House of Assembly in October 2019.

Justice John Olorunfemi, while delivering the judgement faulted Achuba’s removal from office and said the nomination of Edward Onoja as the deputy governor did not follow due process.

Olorunfemi also described Achuba’s removal as a violation of the Constitution.
