Umaru said: “The essence of bringing up this matter is to seek approval from the Senate for the Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters to conduct necessary oversight function on the matter.”

In his ruling the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, said the committee has the power to conduct oversight function on any agency under its jurisdiction and does not need any approval from the Senate to do so.
