Lawmaker asks Nigerians for help
Jibrin also said it would be a shame if Nigerians let the leadership of the House of Representative humiliate him.
The lawmaker alleged that his suspension is part of the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara’s plan to quieten him.
He said “Today, I’m being humiliated and my crime is simply exposing corruption in high places. Who will want to take such risk in future?”
Reacting to the sealing of his office by staff of the National Assembly, Jibrin said “The office was purportedly sealed as a consequence of my illegal suspension.
“But the truth was that it was done to enable the Speaker lay hands and destroy evidence.”
Lagos lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Femi Falana described the suspension of the lawmaker as the height of contemptand a primitive resort to self-help by the House of Representatives.
