The Chief Judge of Edo State, Justice Daniel Okungbowa, has made changes to the seven-man panel tasked with investigating the alleged misconduct and perjury accusations against State Deputy Governor Philip Shaibu by the Edo State House of Assembly.

In the revised list, Prof. Boniface Omomion and Prof. Violet Aigbokhaevo have been removed from the panel, and in their place, President Aigbokhian and Mariam Erakhoba Ilavbare have been appointed as new members.

Justice Okungbowa stated that the panel’s formation was in response to the resolution of the Edo State House of Assembly on March 19.
