Reps Summon Police, EFCC Over Alleged Harassment Of Ex-lady
Chairman of the committee, Hon. Nkem Abonta who noticed that EFCC and other invited agencies were absent at the hearing said; “Even now we have issued a summon that was not honoured, we know what to do.”
However, the NDLEA represented by a Director in the Agency, Mr. Femi Oloruntoba informed the lawmakers that his agency got a tip-off from an unnamed source to the effect that the property located at Igbeti Rock Street Maitama Abuja was being used for drug related activities.
“Based on the information, 8 officers of my agency visited the premises, after surveillance was conducted on the premises. It is not true that 50 officers from my agency visited the premises”.
According to Oloruntoba, the officer who met two occupants of the premises provided them with a search endorsement form which they endorsed indicating that the search was conducted without any damage to the property or any loss of items.
The legal team from Granville Abibo (SAN) & Co led by Sammie Somiari – who petitioned the House on behalf of Mrs Jonathan had earlier told the committee that the team would adopt the initial petition as their brief in the matter, adding that additional documents were available to substantiate whatever they have raised in the petition.
Adefabi pledged that the school authority would take proactive measures to nip future violent acts in the bud in order to forestall unwarranted destruction of property and disruption of the institution’s academic calendar after citing different media reports and newspaper headlines as pointers to the allegation of attacks on their client.
