Senators Ovie Omo-Agege (APC, Delta) and Ali Ndume (APC, Borno), have been summoned by the Senate and the House of Representatives joint adhoc committee investigating the April 18 Senate invasion.
The lawmakers allegedly aided the invaders who stole the mace from the Senate, which was later recovered by the police.
Bala Ibn Na’Allah, the chairman of the investigating committee, issued the summon at the committee meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.
“Based on the testimony of the sergeant at arms before the committee, you (Mr Ndume) are alleged to have prevented the mace keeper from taking away the mace to safety.
“The committee has, therefore, deemed it necessary to invite you in order to respond to that allegation.
“As regards to Omo-Agege, based on the testimony of the DPO, the SSS and the sergeant at arms, you are alleged to have entered the National Assembly accompanied by seven persons who allegedly took the mace of the Senate during plenary session on April 18, at about 11:30 a.m.
“All those who testified, stated that the said people were cleared into the chamber based on your confirmation that they were with you.
“The committee, in pursuance of this,has deemed it necessary to formally invite you to respond to these allegations on Wednesday, May 16 at 11:00am,” Mr Na’Allah said as he read out the format of the letter to be issued to the summoned lawmakers.
