The former senator who represented Bayelsa West Senatorial Zone was charged with offences of cheating, impersonation, forgery which were at variant with sections 363, 368, 366 and 324 of the Penal Code.

Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo was sworn in as deputy to Douye Diri, following the Supreme Court judgement disqualifying the former governor-elect, David Lyon of the All Progressive Congress.
