The Senate had, on Thursday, given permission to its Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions, headed by Senator Sam Anyanwu, to issue a warrant of arrest on Lamorde
The committee, which investigated a petition against Lamorde by George Oboh, had asked the Senate for the order to issue the warrant of arrest against Lamorde to enable him to answer for his activities during his tenure.

However, while the senators were giving the order, Lamorde was in Jos as a student of NIPSS.
