A female member of the Federal House of Representative, Onyemeachi Mprakpor, is alleged to have been beaten up, on Wednesday, by the security officials attached to the Comptroller-General of Prisons, Peter Ezenwa Ekpendu, within the premises of the National Assembly.
This was made known on Thursday by the Minority Leader of the House, Leo Ogor, during the plenary session of the House.
The sad incident purportedly occurred when Mkrakpor, who represents Aniocha/Oshimili Federal Constituency of Delta State, was driving out of the National Assembly complex and overtook the 15-car convoy of the prison boss.
“They blocked her car, and started bashing her car. When she wound down the windows, an aide slapped her in the face. The CG sat in the comfort of his car while this happened.”
The statement by the House Minority leader was supported by the Majority Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila.
He noted that Mkrakpor had called him immediately after the sad incident occurred.
The legislators, after deliberating on the course of action to take, decided to summon the involved parties and security officials.
