Reps Summon Prisons Boss, Dambazau Over Assault On Female Lawmaker

The House of Representatives has summoned the Comptroller-General of Prisons, Peter Ezenwa Ekpendu, and the Minister of Interior, Abdulraman Dambazau, to appear before its Committee on Interior over assault on a female lawmaker, Onyemaechi Mrakpor, within the National Assembly complex.

Also summoned to appear before the committee are the security agencies within the National Assembly, such as Department of State Service, Nigerian Police, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Federal Road Safety Commission, and Sergeant-at-Arms, who were said to be watching when the alleged assault took place in the presence of the Prisons Comptroller-General.

The House mandated the committee to speed up action on the investigation so as to submit its report on Tuesday, April twenty sixth, 2016, even as it called for the immediate sack of the Comptroller-General of prisons, despite its resolution to give him fair hearing.
