Forgery: Court Strikes Out Suit Against Saraki, Ekweremadu

Bukola-Saraki-and-Ike-Ekweremadu1-600x326A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja and presided over by Justice Ademola Adeniyi, on Wednesday, struck out the suit that sought to remove the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, from office on the premise that the Senate Standing Orders 2015, that produced them, was forged.

Justice Adeniyi terminated further hearing on the matter after the plaintiffs who are five Senators Abu Ibrahim, Kabir Marafa, Ajayi Boroffice, Olugbenga Ashafa and Suleiman Hunkuni, applied to withdraw the suit.

At the resumed sitting on the case yesterday, the plaintiffs, through their lawyer, Chief Mamman Osuman (SAN), said their decision to discontinue further hearing on the matter was in view of the fact that the essence of the suit had been overtaken by events.

They noted that the Senate leadership under Saraki and Ekweremadu, despite the pendency of the suit, had carried out several legislative actions, among which they said included the constitution of different committees for the 8th Senate.
