The Senate, on Thursday mandated its committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal matters to investigate the reported invasion of a Federal High Court, Abuja, by operatives of the Department of State Services.
This is sequel to a point of order moved by the chairman of the committee, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele.
Opeyemi noted that Nigerians had raised a lot of concern in different quarters on the issue.
He also noted that the leadership and members of the judiciary were particularly concerned about the development.
He said the nation’s judiciary believed that the courtroom was meant to be a sanctuary.
He, therefore, urged the Senate to act on it as representatives of the people.
