The move followed a resolution of the House which came through the consideration of the interim report of the Adhoc Committee on the ‘Indiscriminate Erection of Stalls in Ekeoha Shopping Centre Aba- A Genocide waiting to Happen’.

Sources told Vanguard that the call for suspension may not be unconnected with an alleged attack on members of the adhoc House committee investigating indiscriminate erection of shops during their visit to the Ekeoha market,  Aba.
