Senate calls for tightened security in NASS

Nearly one week after hoodlums invaded the National Assembly, the Senate is setting up a joint committee with the House of Representatives to examine the factors which led to the invasion and find recommendations to ensure it does not reoccur.

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, made this announcement on Tuesday, at the resumption of legislative proceedings for the week.

The announcement comes after unidentified persons on April 18, stormed the Senate Chambers and disrupted the proceedings.

The invaders snatched the mace and took it away.

Reports linked the invaders as supporters of the Senator representing Delta State, Senator Ovie Omo- Agege who was suspended last week.

During the plenary, Senators raised fears over what they described as security challenges in the National Assembly, which paved way for the hoodlums.

Chairman, Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Debts,Shehu Sani described the incident as an act of ‘collusion’.

The Senate leadership directed its Committee on Security to devise new ways of strengthening security in the National Assembly.
