The House of Representatives on Tuesday called for an investigation into the invasion of an Abuja Federal High Court by operatives of the Department of States Services, DSS.
The lower legislative chamber directed its relevant committees to probe the alleged DSS invasion of the court.
Minority Leader of the House, Ndudi Elumelu raised the matter on the floor of the House during plenary.
Elumelu stated that the occurrence was an abuse of the sanctity of the court.
The lawmaker described DSS action as “one arm of government attempting to overpower another, which will spell doom for the country’s democracy.”
However, the spokesperson of DSS, Peter Afunanya, had insisted that the activist’s supporters had acted an “orchestrated drama” inside the court.
