Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has filed a suit against the leadership of the National Assembly for failure to release the reports of various corruption probes carried out by the National Assembly.
The group filed a lawsuit against the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, and Speaker of House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila over their failure to publish reports of all completed public hearings and corruption probes by the National Assembly since 1999.

The suit was filed at the Federal High Court, Abuja.
SERAP is also suing the duo for their failure to disclose the number of probes that have resulted in the indictment of suspects and to name such suspects.
The suit followed recent public hearings by the National Assembly on corruption allegations in ministries, departments & agencies, including the NDDC & NSITF. Reports of several public hearings & corruption probes have remained secret & the allegations unresolved.
