‘You have no power to summon me’- former EFCC boss, Lamorde tells Senate
Speaking through his Lawyer, Festus Keyamo who represented him at the senate hearing today, Lamorde argued that it is only a law court that can invite him for any investigation.
He said he will only honor the invitation of the senate only if he is invited as a witness and not an accused. The Chairman of the committee, Emmanuel Nwanyawu, told Keyamo that the committee is not a court of law and, therefore, a lawyer cannot appear before it on behalf of his client. He said another letter of summons would be issued to Mr. Lamorde informing him he must appear before the committee on November 24th.
