The Police have met with the Clerk of the National Assembly, Alhaji Salisu Maikasuwa, and some principal officers over a petition that the Senate standing rules was substituted.

The Deputy Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Abayomi Shogunle, confirmed to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the meeting took place in the office of the clerk on Monday.

Shogunle said that a senator had petitioned that the standing rule was substituted without the authorisation of the Senate.

He said that the meeting where some senators were questioned, followed a request by the police to the clerk to facilitate it.

He also confirmed that the petitioner (senator) had made a statement to the police over the allegation.

Asked whether the petition was specifically targeted at the Deputy President of the Senate, Sen. Ike Ekweremadu, the deputy force spokesman said it was not but ``against procedure’’

Shogunle said contrary to reports, the deputy senate president was not invited by the police and declined further comments, adding that the matter was under investigation. (NAN)
