Oyegun made the disclosure while speaking to journalists in Abuja on Monday, June 20, 2016.

“We will just wait and see as we are also making investigations to be sure what the situation is,” he said, according to The Cable.

“At this stage I don’t think there is anything to say. In fact everything is still a guess work. Nobody has said yes or they have been arrested or asked to make statement or whatever.

“As a party we do not think it is the business of the party to interfere in judicial matters of that nature,” he added.

Saraki and his deputy Ike Ekweremadu have been accused of forging the 2015 Senate Standing Rules.
