The House of Representatives on Tuesday named a committee to investigate weekend’s raid by the State Security Service, SSS, on some judges’ homes across the country.
The motion was tabled by a lawmaker from Rivers State, Chinda Ogundu.
SSS operatives conducted a night raid of the residences of some judges between Friday and Saturday.
The six-state sweep also included Mr. Ogundu’s state of Rivers, where Governor Nyesom Wike foiled an attempt to arrest a judge attached to the Port Harcourt Division of the Federal High Court.
The House however refused to summon Mr. Daura, but asked the committee to investigate the circumstance of the raid.
A lawmaker, Mojeed Alabi, suggested that the House should respect the principles of separation of powers and stay away from the matter, but the House approved the motion nonetheless.
Meanwhile, a motion seeking to invite the Director-General of SSS to answer questions about the raid failed at the Senate.
