Crisis has hit the Zamfara State House of Assembly as 18 of the 24 members endorsed the impeachment of the speaker, Bilyaminu Ismail Moriki during an emergency meeting on Thursday night.

Consequently, Hon Bashar Gummi was ratified as the pro-tempore speaker.

Reports showed that the removal of the speaker was not unconnected with the motion moved by one of the members representing Maru State Constituency, Nasiru Abdullahi.

According to the lawmakers, the removal was as result of resurgence of insecurity as bandits rampantly attacked communities across the state unchecked.

The impeached speaker was said to be out of the state for some days before his removal.

Shamsudeen Basko representing Talata Mafara told the new speaker that the issue of insecurity was one of the key issues to be given top priority which led to the impeachment of the former speaker.

“I have two issues but an observation was made on one, which is that of insecurity which has been disturbing our people, some are being killed and abducted.

“What are we doing in the assembly? We need to stand up and do something to defend our people because the armed bandits are invading our communities,” he said.
