Those appointed into the Committee which was announced by the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu are: Jerry Useni, Hamman Misau, Kabir Marafa, Solomon Olamilekan, Mathew Urhoride and Chukwuka Utazi.
The development followed a motion moved yesterday by Senator Ahmed Ogembe, stating that the Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello was behind the invasion of his empowerment programmes that left scores injured.
After serious debate, Senate resolved to constitute a committee to investigate the matter in order to determine the involvement of Kogi State governor.

It was not clear to Nigerian Eye, as at the time of this report if the governor would be personally asked to appear before the committee to answer charges against him.
