The Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters on Thursday gave the Department of State Security Services 24 hours to submit a memorandum on the alleged invasion of the Abuja Federal High Court.

The Committee also asked the presiding judge, Justice , the Attorney General of the Federation, , Counsel to Omoyele Sowore, , the Executive Secretary of the National Human Rights Commission, , and the Office of the Chief Judge of Federal High Court to each submit a memorandum on the incident.

DSS operatives had allegedly invaded the Federal High Court in Abuja to rearrest publisher of SaharaReporters, Omoyele Sowore few hours after he was released on December 6.

Each of the memoranda is expected to detail the events of the day.

Giving the directive, the Committee Chairman, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, explained that the panel is unable to hold the scheduled investigative hearing as the Senate suspended all activities in honour of Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu who died in Abuja on Wednesday.
