According to Punch, a source who is a National Working Committee member of the APC said the party will not dabble into the matter because no formal report has been brought before it.

He said what happened in the Senate between the legislators is covered by legislative immunity.

Adding that “There are procedures for dealing with issues of indiscipline which acts such as what allegedly transpired between the two distinguished senators could fall under.

“First, there has to be a formal complaint which will be sent to the disciplinary committee to look into.

“The committee will investigate and also invite the person who is accused of committing an offence. It is after we have heard from both the petitioner and the respondent and a guilty verdict is entered; that a recommendation for disciplinary action can be made to the relevant authorities.

“All these procedures have to be followed before any action can be taken.

“As of today, to the best of my knowledge, there has not been any petition before the party.”
