Delta state -. Following allegations of anti-party activities, the Delta state chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has suspended Senator Peter Nwaoboshi.

Nigerian Tribune reports that the lawmaker representing Delta North was suspended for one month on Wednesday, June 23.

PDP state publicity secretary, Dr. Ifeanyi M. Osuoza who announced the suspension said the decision was taken at the party’s State Working Committee (SWC) emergency meeting.

He said:

“This action has become necessary against the backdrop of the recent romance with an opposition Party, verbal recklessness, and unprovoked utterances of Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, particularly against the person of His Excellency, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, the Executive Governor of Delta State, which the PDP State Working Committee views strongly as totally unacceptable, disturbing and unbecoming of a politician and party member of his stature.”

Nwaoboshi was accused of money laundering to the tune of N322 million by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Reading out the verdict on Friday, June 18, Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke held that the agency did not prove the elements of the offences for which it charged Nwaoboshi, adding that witnesses were not called to testify.
