The Senate has condemned the Nigeria Police for dismissing the alleged assassination attempt on the Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, as burglary.
Senators, at the plenary on Wednesday, took turns to criticise the police as making conclusions on the invasion of Ekweremadu’s home by armed men in the early hours of Tuesday without proper investigation.
Ekweremadu expressed his disappointment in the police, saying the police was yet to interrogate the security operatives attached to him and arrest the fleeing suspects.
The Deputy Senate President threatened to release the video footage showing how he was attacked to the public, which he said the police was yet to watch and study.
The lawmakers, therefore, resolved that the police must conduct a thorough investigation of the crime.
