Jibrin asks SSS to mete out the same judges' treatment to indicted lawmakers

12 October 2016, 12:04

Abuja - Suspended lawmaker, Abdulmumin Jibrin, on Tuesday expressed his frustration at the pace with which the State Security Service is handling his petition against the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, and some lawmakers, Premium Times reports.

Jibrin said the budget padding scandal plaguing the House constituted a threat to national security and would mark a dereliction of duty if the secret police failed to press charges against lawmakers in a timely manner.

“I strongly believe that these chronic fraud and corruption in the House of Representatives are undoubtedly a threat to national security and must be dealt with decisively without further delays.

“You will be failing in your duties and responsibilities as patriotic citizens and officials of the State Security Service if you fail to take necessary action to bring this disgraceful and destructive situation to an end,” Jibrin said.

Jibrin’s displeasure was contained in a statement on Tuesday afternoon, which he also used to weigh in on the recent clampdown on judges by the SSS.

Jibrin said it was instructive to see the SSS move against judges while failing to act on his petition which was sent nearly three months ago, leaving Mr. Dogara and other lawmakers to walk free.

Meanwhile the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has forwarded the names of six more judges to the Department of State Services for investigation according to News24.
