The Senate has said that it will investigate the status of the 5G Communication network in Nigeria and how the technological impact will affect Nigerians.

Senator Uche Ekwunife sponsored the motion during plenary on Tuesday.

She raised concerns about the uncertainty of whether or not 5G has been launched in Nigeria.

She further raised concerns by some scientists and medical experts that the emissions from the 5G towers could adversely affect the health of citizens by causing symptoms like damage to eyes, antibiotics resistance, and other physiological effects on the nervous and immune system.
