ABUJA-MEMBERS of the House of Representatives Tuesday went on a rowdy session over the ‘killing’ of a motion on the $9.3million exported into South Africa to purchase arms.

The motion which was stepped down last week Thursday, entitled:’ The Need to Investigate the attempt to smuggle $9.3m cash into South Africa and sponsored by Deputy Minority Leader, Rep Suleiman kawu Sumaila was sent to the grave without a debate.

This development however did not go down well with the APC lawmakers who immediately staged a walkout out of the chamber and addressed the press to register their anger.

Trouble however started when Rep Kawu moved that his motion which was stepped down last week be taken under matters of national importance as he was unavoidably absent at last Thursday’s plenary.
