The Senate on Wednesday adopted a point of order brought by the Senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial district, Banta Masi Garba to discuss the tragic death of the former Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice Marshal Alex Sabundu Badeh.
Senator Banta Masi came under order 42 to inform the Senate that the former Chief of Air Staff was ambushed and shot by yet-to-be known gunmen on Abuja-Keffi road while on his way back from his farms.
“Mr. President, distinguished colleagues, I am standing on Order 42 of the Senate rules for personal explanation to inform the Senate that the former Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice Marshal Alex Badeh was shot dead yesterday.
“Late Badeh is an indigene of Adamawa State and I want the matter discussed.”
Reacting, the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki said the order with which the matter was raised could not allow debate.
He urged the sponsor to come through the relevant rules to enable its debate by lawmakers, while he adopted that the matter be brought forward on Thursday.
