The directive of the House followed the raising of the issue under matters of urgent public importance by Omotayo Awodiji (APC- lrepodun).

Awodiji said that the lodge was transferred to Saraki under the state’s Pension Law for Governors and Deputy Governors.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Saraki was a two-term governor of the state.

Awodiji, however, insisted that the ownership of the lodge was not transferable as it was meant for an incumbent Chief Executive of the state.

The Speaker, Danladi Yakubu- Salihu, while reading the resolutions of the House, said there was the need for the House to investigate the matter.

This, he said, was to put an end to all forms of abnormality in the state in order to enhance the well being of the people and fast track the socio-economic development of the state.

The committee as to report back to the House on Thursday.
