Prison Controller General’s Aide Gives A Female House Of Reps Member Dirty Slaps

Members of the House of Representatives are boiling with anger
after their colleague was brutally slapped by an aide of the Controller General of the Nigeria Prisons, Dr Peter Ekpendu.
The House of Representatives has summoned the Controller General of the Nigeria Prisons, Dr Peter Ekpendu to appear before its interior committee over the battering of a female lawmaker by his aide as he sat in his car and watched.
The House has ordered Ekpendu to immediately appear before its interior committee to answer questions about the incident.
The decision was taken after a motion by minority leader Leo Ogor, who came under a matter of privilege to inform the House that some personnel of the prisons CG “assaulted and harassed” Rep Mrakpor Onyeamaechi Jona (PDP, Delta) on Wednesday.
According to Ogor, the unnamed female House of Reps member was slapped mercilessly on the face by an aide to the CG. Ogor said: “A member of this great chamber was leaving for a service, while the convoy of the CG Prisons was passing. She was blocked and an aide to the CG battered her car. One of the security officers slapped her on the face. The CG of prisons will sit in the comfort of his car, while a Nigerian is being assaulted?
“I don’t want to give him the honour of appearing before this Hon House. It will be embarrasing to us for him to appear here. He has clearly violated the legislative powers of the constitution. For the principle of fair hearing, we should let him appear before the committee,” he said.
The House also summoned all the security agencies at the National Assembly gate including the Sergeant-At-Arms to brief the House on what they did when the incident happened.
