Senate moves to amend laws establishing security outfits


Based off the reactions concerning the DSS’ arrest to some judges, the Senate says it will amend the laws establishing some security outfits in the country to ensure that they operate within the dictates of the law.

Guardian reports that the motion was moved by Sen. Joshua Ledani. And the Senate concluded that the DSS overstepped its legal authority by the manner it went after the judges.

Ruling on the motion, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki said “The National Assembly has been playing its role to support the government in its fight against corruption. We must ensure that this fight is within the rule of law, any act of anti-corruption that goes against the rule of law does not help the corruption fight. That is why this action has been seen in this manner and is condemned by the Senate. All agencies of government must ensure that they act within the rule of law.”
