Me­laye alleges plot to twist ev­i­dence against Saraki, Ek­w­ere­madu

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Is­mail Mu­dashir

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.
