Senate Begins Probe Into Alleged Plot To Sack Saraki, Ekweremadu, Others



The Nigerian Senate has reportedly begun a probe into the alleged plot to sack its president, Bukola Saraki and others.

According to The Punch, the Senate has begun investigation into the alleged plot by some members to sack the President, Bukola Saraki and Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, and other leaders of the chamber.

Raising the alarm through a point of order at the plenary on Wednesday, Senator Obinna Ogba (PDP, Ebonyi-Central) alleged that the group of aggrieved senators was also mobilising civil society and trade groups to protest against Saraki’s leadership.

Ekweremadu, who presided over the plenary, referred the matter to the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions.
