The House of Representatives on Wednesday directed its Committee on Ethics and Privileges to probe the 50,000 dollars bribe allegedly offered the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, lawmakers in the house.

Aliyu Madaki (APC-Kano) on Tuesday alleged that PDP members were offered the bribe.

The member said that it was to kill a motion to probe the 9.3 million dollars seized by the South African authorities from three Nigerians and an Isreali.

Responding to Mr. Madaki’s allegation, the Deputy Speaker, Emeka Ihedioha, said that Mr. Madaki would appear before the Ethics and Privileges Committee to prove his allegation.

Mr. Ihedioha, who described Mr. Madaki’s allegation as “grievous and regrettable”, said he (Madaki) risked suspension if he failed to prove the allegation.

“This matter is referred to the House Committee on Ethics and Privileges for investigation and to report back in two weeks,” Mr. Ihedioha stated.

A motion to probe the incident on Tuesday was voted out without debate.

This development caused the All Progressives Congress, APC, lawmakers to walk out during the plenary.
