The Legislative arm of Ikorodu West Local Council Development Area (LCDA) has impeached the council chairman, Hon. Princess Ganiyat Olajumoke Jimbo Ademehin, in a unanimous resolution passed by the House.

According to a statement released by the Council Leader, Hon. Agbaje Wasiu Omotayo, the impeachment was based on allegation of gross misconduct and abuse of public office levelled against the council boss.

Princess Ademehin, who was summoned to appear before the Councillors, failed to appear before the Legislative Council to defend herself with appropriate and relevant documents stating the facts and figures against the allegation at the expiration of the seven working days ultimatum on Monday stated in the summons.

The LCDA Chairman was also alleged by the councillors to be stifling the development of Ikorodu West LCDA and thereby compromising the development agenda of T.H.E.M.E.S and consequently that of achieving a Greater Lagos.
