Mace Theft: Senators Restricts Public Access
The National Assembly has initiated moves to restrict members of the public from its environs and also pleaded with people to bear with them on the security measures which main aim is to guard against loopholes in the security architecture of the National Assembly Complex.
The legislature has also begun an internal investigation into the invasion of the Senate and snatching of its mace by suspected thugs last Wednesday.
Bukola Saraki, President of the Senate, after a prolonged closed-door session today, said the security measures would restrict movements and access to the premises.
He announced that the Senate and the House of Representatives had resolved to form a joint committee that would probe into the circumstances surrounding the attack.
Saraki also said senators had also mandated a joint committee in the Senate to meet with the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, on how to protect the building and its environs.
