The House of Representatives had last week taken over the Kogi State House of Assembly and directed the Inspector General of Police to seal it.
Efforts by Senator Dino Melaye to stop the Senate from concurring with the resolution hit the rock as Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, ruled him out of order
Melaye had told his colleagues that the Kogi crisis is already in court and should not be discussed.
Saraki, however, said the report isn't a petition.
He explained that it's a simple concurrence with the House of Representatives.
Saraki noted that the take over of the Kogi Assembly by National Assembly isn't indefinite.
The Senate subsequently directed Solomon Arase, the Inspector General of Police to seal the Kogi State House of Assembly complex till further notice.
