The Nigerian Senate has mandated its Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters to investigate the alleged invasion of a Federal High Court by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) in their bid to rearrest Omoyele Sowore.
The resolution comes after a point of order raised by the Committee Chairman, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, who is representing Ekiti Central.
Senator Bamidele coming under order 43 of the Senate Standing Rules, drew the attention of the upper chamber to the alleged invasion of a Federal High Court, Abuja, presided over by Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu.
He said that the Senate cannot afford to gloss over the matter as direct representatives of the people.
The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, said since the matter concerned the judiciary, the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, Bamidele’s Committee should start legislative action on the issue and submit its report next week.
