The Senate on Tuesday mandated its standing committee on ethics, privileges and public petitions to investigate the alleged assault on a security guard, Clement Sargwak.
Sagwak, had petitioned the Senate through its senator Istifanus Gyang (North Plateau).
Senate Speaker Ahmed Lawan has asked the Ethics and Privileges Committee headed by Senator Ayo Akinyelure to investigate the matter and report back in four weeks.
The Senate investigation was based on the fact that the petitioner had not yet sought redress in court.
Before presenting the petition to the plenary session, Gyang said that the petitioner was seeking justice, given the assault on him by the Tribunal judge, in the performance of his duties.
Gyang said the petitioner alleged that Omar assaulted him, asked him to kneel and also slapped him. (NOPE)
