AGF bluffs Senate, shuns summon over Saraki, Ekweremadu’s case

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, Thursday shunned the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters.

The senate decision was reached after the senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye moved a motion relying on order 14 and 52, to demand the approval of his colleagues for his two prayers including the invitation of the AGF and the validity of the rule book.


There is no reason at present why the AGF refused to honour the Senate summon or what will be the next line of action of the senators.
