//Senate Orders Police To Vacate Akwa Ibom Assembly

He said, “Security agents are still there. No legislator has been allowed in or out. We owe the people of Akwa Ibom this responsibility. It is not right. An injury to Akwa Ibom State is an injury to Nigeria.” Contributing to the issue, Senator Ahmad Kaita said, “If the police vacate the premises, the legislators will go in there with their supporters and create fracas. The police are only there to promote peace. Let us, as a Senate, verify the facts of this issue before taking any action.”

At the end of the debate, which saw Senators Bukola Saraki, Ike Ekweremadu, Bala Na’allah, Sam Anyanwu and others contributing, the Senate resolved to “ask that the police vacate the premises and not prevent the legislators to have access to the chambers.”
