Senate Blocks Move To Summon Lawan Daura, SSS Boss, Over Raids On Judges


The Senate has stood down a proposal to invite the Director General of the State Security Service, Lawan Daura, over the ongoing clampdown on suspected corrupt judges.

In a motion brought as matter of urgent national importance by Joshua Lidani (PDP-Gombe), the Senate was asked to look into the action of the SSS which led to arrest of seven judges in the early hours of Saturday.

One of the resolutions canvassed by Mr. Lidani was that the Senate should invite Mr. Daura to explain why his agency carried out the action the way it did without deference to the constitutional responsibility of the National Judicial Council.
When Mr. Saraki called for vote to uphold Mr. Lidani’s prayer, Senators yelled “ayes” and later “nay” in somewhat equal proportion.

Then, Mr. Saraki put the question again resulting in similar response as the first.
He then ruled “the nays have it”, translating to defeat of the proposal to invite Mr. Daura.
Specifically, Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, supported the prayer that Mr. Daura be invited.
But other Senators did not touch that part of the prayers sought.
The Senate however condemned the raid on residences of the Judges.
