Senate constitutes joint committee to strengthen security in National Assembly complex

The Senate and the House of Representatives have resolved to constitute a joint committee to strengthen security in the National Assembly complex towards avoiding a repeat of last Wednesday’s invasion of the Senate chamber by suspected thugs.

The decision to constitute the joint committee was announced by Senate President Bukola Saraki who presided at the plenary session that followed a closed-door session.

Saraki also urged the public to bear with the lawmakers on the security measures that would be deployed in blocking the loopholes in the security architecture of the National Assembly Complex.

He also said the Senate had mandated a joint committee in the Senate to grill the Director General of the Department of State Services, Lawal Daura; and the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and also discuss how to protect the building and its environs with the security chiefs.
