An Abuja Federal High Court has removed two House of Representatives members from Enugu State and ordered them to refund all emoluments they have earned.
The lawmakers were removed as the judge ruled that they were not the actual winners of the legislative elections of 2015.
The court held that Gabriel Okafor was the rightful winner of Igbo-Etiti /Uzo-Uwani Federal Constituency seat election, not Stella Ngwu, who is currently occupying the seat.
Also Nmachi Agbo was ruled to be illegally occupying the Igbo-Eze North/Udenu Federal Constituency seat, which the court held was duly won by Chijioke Ugwu.
The judge ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to immediately issue certificates of return to both Okafor and Ugwu.
The removed lawmakers may however, chose to appeal the ruling at the court of appeal.
