This came four months after the speaker, Paul Emeziem had controversially suspended the lawmakers on what he tagged ” unpalamentary conduct”.

The suspension which happened on July, 8 attracted wide condemnation from the people of the state.

But on October 6, a suit challenging the suspension of the 6 lawmakers was struck out by a court in Owerri.

Counsel to the embattled lawmakers, Kingdom Okere, told our correspondent that the suit was struck out after his clients and the Assembly leadership reached a consensus.

Emeziem, during the plenary announced that the suspended lawmakers had repented hence the lifting of the four months old ban.

The lawmakers are, Kennedy Ibe( Obowo), Onyemaechi Njoku( Ihitte Uboma), Uche Ogbuagu( Ikeduru), Anyadike Nwosu( Ezinihitte Mbaise), Philip Ejiogu, ( Owerri North), and Dominic Ezerioha( Oru West)
