Kogi State House of Assembly has suspended the Executive Chairman of Okene LGA, Engr. Abdulrazaq Muhammad indefinitely.
This followed the allegations of intimidation, unlawful arrest, torture and harassment of innocent people who go against his faith and Ozi-Ogu clan being investigated.
His suspension followed a report from the Department of State Services (DSS) which passed through the office of the governor to the house alleging that he used his position as council chairman to carry out undue arrest, intimidate and torture anyone who was against his Oziogu clan.
The Speaker, Prince Mathew Kolawole, who read the report on Tuesday during the house plenary said the council chairman would remain suspended until the DSS completes its investigation.
Kolawole directed the vice-chairman to immediately take over the affairs of the council.
He also directed the house committee on local government to carry out an independent investigation and report back to the house.
