Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that the Senate suspended Ovie Omo-Agege for 90 legislative days.
The upper legislative chamber took the decision after it considered a report by its ethics committee.
The committee had recommended that the senator be suspended for 181 days but the senate reduced it after pleas from lawmakers. Omo-Agege was one of the senators who kicked against the election reordering bill.
