A High Court sitting in Lokoja has declared the impeachment of Simon Achuba, former Kogi deputy governor by the State House of Assembly as illegal, null and void.

Delivering the judgment on Wednesday, Justice John Olorunfemi said Achuba’s impeachment from office by the Assembly is a violation of the constitution and the subsequent nomination of Edward Onoja as the deputy governor, did not follow due process
