The impeached Speaker of the Ogun state House of Assembly, Olakunle Oluomo, was on Monday arraigned before a Federal High Court sitting in Oke Mosan, Abeokuta.

The former Speaker was docked alongside two other career officers of the state Assembly, Dayo Samuel and Adeyemo Adedeji before Justice O.O Okeke.

Recall that 18 out of 26 lawmakers recently signed his impeachment over allegations bordering on high-handedness, gross misconduct, arrogance, poor leadership style, lack of focus and transparency, and pitching members against themselves.
