The House of Representatives has summoned the Director-General, Department of State Service (DSS) to appear before it within 48 hours to explain why the DSS invaded Ekiti House of Assembly.

The summon followed the unanimous adoption of a motion under matters of urgent public importance moved by House Minority Leader, Rep. Leo Ogor (PDP-Delta) on Tuesday in Abuja.

The members and staff of the Assembly scampered for safety when armed operatives of the DSS invaded the Assembly complex last week Friday.

Presenting the motion, Ogor decried the action, stressing that such interference violated the principle of separation of powers.

He said: “It is a clear violation of the provisions of the constitution; it is unacceptable as it demonstrates interference with an arm of government.

“If somebody violates the law and nothing is done, it gives him the privilege to move forward.

“Therefore, it is important that we summon the Director-General of the DSS to explain where the agency derives its powers to invade and destabilise the activities of the House.

“It is important to respect the rule of law and the sanctity of this institution must remain sacrosanct.”

The Speaker, Yakubu Dogara referred the matter to Committee on Public Safety and Intelligence for further legislative action. (NAN)
