Some senators, particularly those who came from the ninth Assembly, have demanded an apology from their colleague, Senator Adams Oshiomhole (APC Edo North), over allegations of vandalism levelled against them.
Oshiomhole, at the Politics Today programme on Channels Television on Sunday, alleged that senators and House of Representatives members of the 9th National Assembly carted away items in their various offices, including rugs.
Senator Adeola Solomon (APC Ogun West), moved a motion demanding an apology from Oshiomhole. He noted that the comment was an embarrassment to the lawmakers and that his privilege had been abused.
The motion was seconded by Senator Chukwuka Utazi (PDP Enugu North) who said that the allegation was a dent on the image of the National Assembly.
The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, in his ruling, referred the matter to the Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions for further investigation and report back to the Senate within two weeks.
