The Kaduna state house of assembly summons seven lawmakers for questioning following what the house called “obstruction of business of the day” during a fight that broke out among them in the state house on July 11th 2020.
The Chairman of the Kaduna State Committee on Ethics and Special Privileges Alhaji Shehu Yunusa disclose this on Tuesday 23th June, 2020 in Kaduna to news men. According to Yunusa, the seven lawmakers which are Mr Nuhu Shadalafiya, Alhaji Yusuf Salihu, the former speaker of the House Alhaji Aminu Abdullahi-Shagali, Alhaji Dahiru Liman, Alhaji Salisu Isa, Alhaji Nasiru Usman, and Alhaji Mukhtar Isa-Hazo are been accused of not obeying the standing order governing the house and an attempt of stealing the mace. According to Yunusa the accused have been interrogated saying the house is going to justify the reports of the findings of the committee. He also promised that the committee will be fair and just at its investigation after the seven present themselves before the committee to defend themselves.
It would be recalled that the lawmakers in questions didn’t conduct themselves well as a video of them fighting in the floor of the house went viral some weeks ago. It is in regards to this that the house set up the committee and gave them the mandate of investigating the cause of the disputes that led to the eviction of the deputy speaker of the house Muktar Hazo.
