The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ese Odo local government area of Ondo State has expelled the lawmaker representing the area, Mr. Success Torukerijoh, for alleged anti-party activities.
The decision to expel the lawmaker was taken during the meeting of party leaders in the LGA held early Sunday.
Torukerijoh is one of the nine lawmakers that opposed the impeachment of the Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, last week.
The state House of Assembly initiated the impeachment proceedings against the deputy governor over his defection to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
