AGF shuns Senate summons

Senator Dino Melaye moved the motion for Malami to be summoned to the Red chambers.

 

You will recall that the lawmakers summoned the AGF after its plenary on Tuesday, June 21, 2016, to come and shed more light on the forgery charges levelled against the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.

Senator Dino Melaye moved the motion for Malami to be summoned to the Red chambers.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) also said it will conduct an investigation into the alleged case of forgery against the two leaders of the Senate.

The Coalition Against Political Victimization also accused the Federal Government of victimising the Senate President.

Reports say Saraki and Ekweremadu will appear before an Abuja High Court on June 27, 2016 to face charges of forgery.
