A report detailing the circumstances surrounding the incident of April 18 when thugs invaded the Senate chamber and made away with the mace is ready, Senate President Bukola Saraki announced on Tuesday.
“Distinguished colleagues, you’ll remember that following the incidence of invasion of the senate, one of the decisions that was taken then was that the management must do a report to find out the roles that were played by all the members and what led to the invasion. The report has been ready and submitted. I think that report should go to the committee on ethics for them to review it and make their recommendation to us,” Mr Saraki said.
The Senate President while commenting on a point of order raised by Tijjani Kaura (Zamfara-APC) made this announcement.
Mr Kaura had called the attention of the senate to recent killings and kidnappings in his constituency urging the senate to look into the matter.
Mr Saraki said the appearance of the Inspector-General of Police on Wednesday will suffice to address security issues in Zamfara and other parts of Nigeria.
“Again it is unfortunate of the incident in Samfara. Which is of a daily basis. It is of great concern to us. We at the National Assembly, we must play our role to see what we can do to tackle this insecurity issue. It is unfortunate as we said last time we expected the IG here, we have given him again till Wednesday to come here so that we can truly engage and address these problems we are facing today in the country.
“We saw what happened in Kaduna State some days ago and now it is Zamfara. We will do our best despite the level of lack of cooperation but we must play our role and I can assure you that we would do something to bring a change and make this country more secure.”
Mr Idris had snubbed the last two invitations by the Senate.
