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. 


Scores of SSS operatives conducted a night raid of the residences of some judges between Friday and Saturday, accusing the judges of fraud. 


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 largely unprecedented operation has continued to generate divergent views amongst Nigerians. 


The Senate condemned the raid, but rejected a motion to summon the Director General of SSS, Lawal Daura.


The House also refused to summon Mr. Daura, but said 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.
