The Ebonyi state House of Assembly on Tuesday has suspended Mrs. Maria Ude Nwachi aka Afikpo Chic representing Afikpo North East constituency in the Assembly, for gross misconduct.
The motion for the suspension was moved by Hon. Joseph Nwobasi the Leader of the House, as Mrs. Nwachi was accused of posing as a public photographer
The House said Nwachi have refused to heed warnings that were giving to her earlier on by the Assembly to desist from being a photographer in the state.
Nwachi, a former Minority Leader, according to the house by her actions has brought disrespect and dishonesty to herself and the Assembly by by posing as public photographer.
She was therefore suspended for 14 days pending the outcome of investigations on the allegations leveled against her by a special committee constituted by the House to investigate the allegations.
This will be the second time she will be suspended by the House.
In 2016 she was suspended for sponsoring a protest by Afikpo youths against the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company, EEDC, for epileptic a service to the town.
