The panel set up by the Chief Judge of Edo State, Justice Daniel Okungbowa, for the impeachment of the Deputy Governor of the state, Philip Shaibu, has commenced sitting.

The seven-man panel set up to investigate the allegation of misconduct leveled against the Deputy Governor commenced sitting on Wednesday.

Recall that the impeachment panel headed by retired Justice S. A. Omonuwa, was set up by the Chief Judge following the resolution by the Edo State House of Assembly, which initiated the impeachment process against Shaibu.

The Punch reports that at the commencement of the panel’s sitting on Wednesday, the State House of Assembly was represented by Deputy Clerk, Legal, Mr Joe Ohiafi, while the Deputy Governor was represented by Prof. Oladoyin Awoyale (SAN).

It is believed that the impeachment process will be the latest development in the political conflict between Shaibu and the state Governor, Godwin Obaseki.
