Reading the petition, Gyang said the petitioner was seeking for justice having been assaulted by the Justice Danladi for doing his legitimate job.
Gyang said the petitioner alleged that the CCT chairman assaulted him, asked him to kneel down and also slapped him.
The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, directed the Senate Committee on Ethics and Public Petitions headed by Senator Ayo Akinyelure to investigate the matter and report back in four weeks.
The Senate’s decision was sequel to the establishment of the fact that the petitioner is yet to seek a legal intervention.
