"This is the second time and its a slap on our face"-Senate
*AGF says panel lacks justification to open the matter up.
Today, the senate committee on Human Rights and Legal Matters
walked the special assistant to President Buhari out from a meeting,
on the grounds that the committee had summoned the Attorney General of
the Federation himself.
Chief Justice Abubakar Malami the Attorney General of the Federation
and the minister of justice was summoned to appear before the senate
committee to explain the reason and rationale behind prosecuting the
presiding and most senior members of the senate.
Earlier in the past few weeks, the AGF had been handling the
prosecution case of the president of the Senate and his deputy over an
alleged forgery of the senate standing rules. And after the AGF ruled
a conditional bail for the case, the senate is under the impression
that the judiciary is in a conspiracy plan that will endanger
Today,thursday 30th June, the senate summoned Malami, to appear
before a panel, but the AGF chose to snub the summon, probably acting
on instructions from the executive. He rather to chose to send the
representative of Buhari Obono-Obla. This made the senate wonder
deeply who the AGF had as backup for his phony actions. After all he

The seating senate expressed concerns over the actions of the AGF
terming it 'a threat to democracy' and that something urgent needed to

representative to deliver a message from th AGF were thwarted by the
committee's chairman Senator David Umaru who insisted that it was the
AGF that was summoned by the house and not his representative.
Consequently Obla was told to leave the place just a few minutes after
he introduced himself.
After the seating, the chairman of the committee said that
reports of events would be sent to the senate-in-planery on resumption
from its current break and that the senate would formerly make the
crucial decisions and take action against Malami. But later on and
outside the senate house, Obono Obla told journalists that the reason
why the AGF snubbed the summons was because he felt the committee had
not enough justification to open the case.
This comes two days after the President of the Senate, Saraki and
his deputy Ike Ekweremadu were arraigned before Justice Malami at a
federal high court in Abuja and granted release on conditional bail.
Two other persons were involved in the case. A former clerk of the
House of Assembly and his assistant.
The four members of the legislative house were prosecuted and
arraigned over an alleged case of forging the Senate standing rules
of 2015 used in approving the election and appointment of top

they have been granted bail. Together with them were two others also
