STRONG indications emerged Tuesday that crisis looms in the National Assembly as former Senate Leader, Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume, APC, Borno South and Senator Ovie Omo- Agege, APC, Delta Central have been summoned to appear before a joint Committee of the Senate and the House of Representatives.
He said: "We have equally filed an appeal against the judgment of the court and a motion for stay of execution of the judgment at the Court of Appeal".
The committee said the punishment was imperative because the senator took the issue to court after it was referred to the committee.
Omo-Agege could not be reached, as he did not pick several calls made to his telephone line.
On the day of his suspension, Omo-Agege told Punch that he would continue to work as a senator.
Justice Nnamdi Dimgba, in the judgment, said the order nullifying the suspension was "with immediate effect".
He established that Omo-Agege came in with seven unidentified persons dressed in black and native wears as he said six of them were arrested with him while one of the suspects escaped using the Presidential Villa gate.
Following the judgement, an aide to Senate President Bukola Saraki, said the Senate has approached the court to appeal the ruling and institute a stay of execution.
"This is pending the determination of the application for stay of execution". But he also advised the lawmakers to withdraw their appeal of the judgement.
