Kabir who is an assistant to Mustafa Saidu from Adamawa State, was caught in the act through a CCTV camera. Saidu is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party while Idris is a member of the All Progressives Congress.
The camera showed Kabir allegedly opening a shelf in the office as well as videos of his interrogation by Idris and some sergeants-at-arms.
Kabir as at 6:18pm was still being interrogated by the National assembly for extorting money from unsuspecting politicians when this report was filed.
According to Idris, “He put off the light in my office but my cameras were on and I could see him. He used different keys. I could see from the camera; he was struggling to open the door and it was less than 15 minutes after I closed from the office. Basically, he was monitoring my movements. We have all the videos.”
Stating further, he said that Kabir’s boss is expected to report to the National Assembly to behold what his assistant has done.
“It will be unfair to take any action or allow anybody to take any action without the consent of his principal. I have already invited him and he is on his way. We will tell him what happened.
“The Chairman of the Press (House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Benjamin Kalu) is with us; his office was also burgled a while ago. We have all been burgled; we don’t know what is happening.”
When contacted, the Divisional Police Officer, National Assembly Division, DSP Abdullahi Sambo, said, “See me on Monday for that.”
