The Sokoto State House of Assembly on Tuesday suspended two of its members, Sani Yakubu, APC- Gudu, and Malami Galadanchi, APC- Sokoto North I.

The Assembly premised their suspension on an unethical conduct.

It then set up a special committee to investigate the conduct of the two members during the recent impeachment of the Deputy House Leader, Kabiru Ibrahim.

The Committee, headed by Habibu Modachi, APC- Isa, in its report, said the two members had pleaded guilty to the charges against them.

According to the report, the conduct of the members on August 15 in the legislative chamber was “unethical” and contravened the house standing rules.
