The United States House of Representatives has impeached President Trump for incitement of insurrection.

The resolution followed the debate on the article of impeachment.

Democrats in the House moved the article of impeachment following the invasion of the Capitol hill during the certification of 2020 presidential election on January 6th.

Prior to the invasion, Trump who is yet to concede the Nov 3rd election which Joe Biden won, addressed a rally of his supporters to “take their country back.”

According to reports on US media, several Republicans vowed to vote in favour of the impeachment. Wyoming Representative, Liz Cheney, the 3rd leadership of the GOP vowed to vote in favour of the impeachment.

Leading the debate on behalf of the Republican Party, Jim Jordan of Ohio accused the radical Left of seeking vengeance.

Making the closing argument for the Republican Party, Minority Whip, Steve Scalise appealed to the other side to let the Nation heal, while paying tribute to the Capitol police who lost two officers to the November 6th hearing. The tribute was met with applause from both sides.

“In times like this, let us yield to our better side.” He said.

Closing the debate for the Democrats, Majority Leader, Steny Hoyer said that in light of civil war analogy of the events of 6th of November, the attack was summoned and inflamed by the President of the United States.

“We will stay in silence, or we will stand up and say this is not acceptable. For 4years, the President has failed to display the principle of the Republican Party. His actions had been rationalised by those who are profiting financially and politically through proximity to power,” he said, adding that “we know that Trump is not a patriot.”

It would be recalled that President Trump was impeached in 2019 by the Democrats led House, but was acquitted by the Republican-led Senate.

The impeachment is not a removal from Office until the US Senate vote to convict. However, the Senate is currently on recess, and will not resume until the tenure of Mr Trump ends in 7days time.

The impeachment implies that if the Senate should convict Trump, he would be barred from holding any political office or elective position again.

The trial at the Senate could happen even when Trump is no longer President.

Historically, Trump is the 1st US President to be impeached twice.

10 Republicans joined the Democrats to impeach Trump. As at the time of filing this report, 229 Lawmakers moved to remove Trump, 195 Republicans voted against the Article.

The Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) on Sunday warned that it would deal with killer herdsmen in the Southwest.

OPC issued the warning in response to the quit notice Governor Rotimi Akaredolu issued to Fulani herdsmen.

Recall that Akeredolu had given a seven-day ultimatum to Fulani herdsmen to vacate the State’s forest reserves.

The Governor had given the quit notice following the high rate of criminalities which come in form of kidnappings, raping of women and killings, allegedly being committed by criminals hiding in forests across Ondo State.

The OPC has now declared readiness to enforce Akeredolu’s ultimatum.

Deputy President to late OPC founder, Otunba Wasiu Afolabi stated this in a statement he issued.

Afolabi vowed that Yoruba youths would defend the Southwest “fire for fire.”

According to Afolabi: “Although the millions of law-abiding Fulani men and women living in our midst have absolutely no cause for alarm, those Fulani criminals hiding under the cloak of being herdsmen to perpetrate evil against law-abiding citizens should know their time is up. Henceforth, it will be fire for fire.

“We are fully prepared to help enforce Governor Akeredolu’s quit notice in Ondo State at the expiration of the two-week deadline.

“We Yoruba shall rise up to defend our land from foreign marauders who daily rape our women, kill our farmers and kidnap Nigerian citizens. Enough is enough.”
