Melaye alleges plot to twist evidence against Saraki, Ekweremadu
The Chairman, Senate Committee on the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Senator Dino Melaye, yesterday alleged a plot to twist evidence in the Senate Rules forgery case against the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.
Melaye in a statement alleged that those behind the plot were arranging to forge a police report different from the one signed by DIG Dan’Azumi J. Doma in other to justify and prove a case of forgery against Saraki and Ekweremadu.
He said it was necessary for members of the public to be aware of the plan.
“We have our own sources and we have been reliably informed that the prosecution having realized that there is a big hole in their case against Saraki and Ekweremadu who were not mentioned in the police report, are now trying to doctor the report and include the names of both presiding officers of the senate. We are aware of that development and we want members of the public to know the level of desperation that these people are ready to go, to nail the senate president and his deputy.
“It is because of this plan that they refused to include the police report in the process they filed in court. We have said it repeatedly that the government and specifically, the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Mr. Abubakar Malami has no case against our presiding officers. They filed the case to distract the two men, embarrass them, force a change of leadership and eventually cow the Senate, in particular, and the National Assembly, in general, “he said.
