Saraki-EkweremaduThe arraignment of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki and three others before Justice Yusuf Haliru of a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court in Abuja for alleged forgery of Senate Standing Rules has been set for June 27.
Mr. Saraki, his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu; a former Clerk to the National Assembly, Salisu Maikasuwa and his deputy, Benedict Efeturi, stand accused of falsifying the Senate’s Standing Rules used in the June 9, 2015 election of presiding officers for the Upper Legislative Chamber.
They were billed to be arraigned on Tuesday before Justice Haliru but the inability of the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation to serve them with the originating summons led to the postponement.
Consequently, the trial judge ordered that the defendants be served with the summons through substituted means.
Justice Haliru ordered that details of the notice of service should be placed on the notice board of the National Assembly for access by the respective defendants.
The defendants will stand trial on two-count charge bordering on conspiracy and forgery of the Standing Rules.
