The Senate, through its committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, on Tuesday re-issued a summon on the Attorney General of the Federation and the Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN).

The Senate, through its committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, on Tuesday re-issued a summon on the Attorney General of the Federation and the Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN).

 It was learnt that the summon was related to the forgery case filed by his office against Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and his deputy, Senator Ike Ekweremadu including other top officials of the National Assembly.

It would be recalled that the Senate had last week summoned Malami to explain and justify with evidence the basis for his action. The motion to summon the AGF was proposed by Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West Senatorial District, who relied on Order 14 and 52 to demand the approval of his colleagues for his two prayers which was okayed by a voice vote.

Malami could not honour the last week invitation as he replied stating the reasons for his absence.
The Senate Panel sent another fresh summons which has the date June 27 and endorsed by its Chairman, Senator David Umaru, request Malami to appear before it on Thursday by noon
Part of the letter, a copy of which was obtained by our correspondent on Tuesday, read,

“I write with reference to your (AGF) correspondence on the above subject matter with Ref. HAGF/NASS/ZOIG/Vol.1/24, dated June 23, 2016, whereby you requested for an adjournment of the meeting of the Committee, which was supposed to hold on Thursday, June 23, 2016, to enable you to prepare your response.
