Omo-Agege: Senate ready to comply with court's judgment - Senator

Sen. Omo Agege absent from plenary

The National assembly has summoned Ovie Omo-Agege, senator representing Delta central, and Ali Ndume, senator representing Borno south, over their alleged roles in the theft of the senate's mace on April 18 2018.

"We have equally filed an appeal against the judgement of the court and a motion for stay of execution of the judgement at the Court of Appeal".

"The judgment that was delivered by the court says that the court was nullifying my suspension "with immediate effect.' If they go ahead and apply for a stay of execution, no court has granted them that".

He established that Omo-Agege came in with seven unidentified persons dressed in black and native wears as he said six of them were arrested with him while one of the suspects escaped using the Presidential Villa gate.

Mr Omo-Agege in reaction on Monday said the appeal would not hinder his resumption as the stay of execution which the Senate applied for has not been granted.

TheNewsGuru reports the Senate filed a notice of appeal and a stay of execution on a High Court judgement nullifying the suspension of Senator Omo-Agege at the Abuja division of the Federal High Court.

Asked if he would drag the security agencies to court, Omo-Agege said, "I know what to do, and they know that I know what to do".

"In the same vein, Colonel Sambo Dasuki ought to be released on bail in line with the orders of the Federal High Court, the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory and the Community Court of Justice Economic Community of West African States", Mr Falana stated.

"Three, the Senate President is in contempt of court because my action was pending in court but he showed a total disregard for the court and proceeded to suspend me while my case in court". His hands in law are soiled and dirty. "But they are not entitled to the equitable relief of stay of the court's judgment." he added.

Chairman of the committee and Deputy Majority Leader of the Senate, Senator Bala Ibn Na'Allah, APC Kebbi South, issued the summon at the committee meeting in Abuja Tuesday.

NAN quoyed some staff of the assembly as saying the development was not unconnected with the expected return of Omo-Agege to the chamber on Tuesday after the court judgment in his favour.

Saraki had said: " It has been inferred in many quarters that this group of thugs and urchins were led by a serving distinguished Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, (this) is most despicable and unspeakable requiring appropriate sanctions against perpetrators".
