The petition was brought before the House of Representatives at plenary Thursday by the Minority Leader, Hon. Leo Ogor.

“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,” Ogor narrated.

Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, The House Leader, also informed the House that Mrukpor called him immediately the alleged  assault took place to make a report.

“She called me and she was crying. I have not seen a thing like this before.

“This is the time we need to rally behind her not just as a member but as a woman.

“This is a clear, straight case; that the attacker is guilty of assault; he is guilty of battery. There is vicarious liability in this case”, Gbajabiamila said.

Also, the House summoned the  unit heads of all security agencies posted to the National Assembly to explain the conduct of their men, who reportedly watched as the member was attacked without intervening.
