House of Representatives, on Sunday, suspended its constitution review hearing in Imo and Abia states.
Deputy Speaker of the House, Idris Wase, who is also the Chairman, House Special Committee on Constitution Review, announced this on Sunday, in a statement he personally signed.
The statement read, “The House of Representatives Special Committee on Constitution Review Zonal Public Hearing scheduled to take place in Owerri Central (Imo and Abia States) on Tuesday, 1st and Wednesday, 2nd June, 2021, has been suspended until further notice.
“The Committee regrets any inconveniences this might cause our esteemed invited guests, stakeholders and the general public.”
The suspension of the constitution review hearing in the two South-Eastern states followed gruesome killings and razing of police stations, and other government assets in the two states.
Recall that gunmen on Sunday morning killed a former presidential aide, Ahmed Gulak, in Owerri, the Imo State capital.
Gulak was shot dead by ‘bandits’ while he was on his way to catch a flight at Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport, Owerri.
