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 State Services, DSS.
The house directed its relevant committees to probe the alleged DSS invasion of the Federal High Court during Sowore’s trial.
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.”
Recall that Department of State Services (DSS) had insisted that the activist’s supporters had acted an “orchestrated drama” inside the court.
The secret Police claimed that none of its officers was involved in the incidents recorded in the courtroom.
