Court stops National Assembly from probing criminal allegations

Kenya's Supreme Court cancels presidential poll result

A Federal High Court in Abuja has ruled that the national assembly does not have constitutional powers to investigate criminal allegations.

According to the court, the national assembly lacks the powers to indict or absolve anyone of crimes.

Justice Gabriel Kolawole, said this in a ruling in suit filed by a senior advocate against the House of Representatives for clearing Former Speaker, Dimeji Bankole, of allegations levelled against him in a newspaper report on the Peugeot Vehicle Acquisition.

The judge rules that only law enforcement agencies or the executive arms have the constitutional powers to handle criminal cases.
