NASS offices are no longer safe, Hon. Kalu

House of Representatives Spokesperson, Hon. Benjamin Kalu has revealed that the National Assembly offices are no longer safe.

He made the allegation after reporting a burglary incident in his office while he was away.

Kalu, who represents Bende Federal Constituency, said the burglary was discovered on Tuesday after he and his aides arrived at the National Assembly Complex for the day’s plenary session.

The lawmakers had gone on recess because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and now sit only on Tuesdays.

Kalu expressed shock over the development and lamented that the National Assembly Complex is “no longer safe”.

“It is actually surprising to see that somebody broke into my office. We are still trying to assess (the situation) to know what the intention of breaking into my office was,” he told journalists at the complex.

“Was it to take an important document out or to check if we are leaving money or any valuables in the office, or to plant any security or spying device?

“Honestly, I don’t know but I have asked my aides to register it with the sergeant-at-arms. It is scary to come into your office and find this.”
“We can’t pin it down, whether it was just breaking in for stealing or breaking in to spy on what the national assembly is doing through my office,” Kalu said, adding: “But whatever it is, I am sure the security agencies will get to the root of it. The National Assembly is no longer safe.“
