Abuja - The Senate is planning to severe its relationship with the Senior Special Assistant to the President National Assembly Matters (Senate), Ita Enang, and six of its members over the forgery allegations against some of its principal officers, Premium Times reports.

The six senators, who might be sanctioned belonged to the self-styled Unity Forum and have been lined up as prosecution witness in the court alleged forgery case involving the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu and two others.

They include Kabiru Marafa, Suleiman Hunkuyi, Ahmed Lawan, Ajayi Borofice, Gbenga Ashafa and Abdullahi Gumel.

The action is coming on the heels of the impending trial of Saraki and Ekweremadu for alleged illegal alteration of Senate Standing Rule.

Also charged alongside the duo are the former Clerk to the National Assembly, Salisu Maikasuwa and his deputy, Benedict Efeturi.

News24 reported that a group of senators who worked for the emergence of Bukola Saraki as Senate President, met on Monday to plot the suspension of senators who wrote the petition that led to the trial of Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.

The pro-Saraki senators resolved to push for the suspension of Senators Kabiru Marafa and Suleiman Hunkuyi, who were allegedly believed to be behind the petition.

The Senate president was said to have submitted at the executive session that he was taken to court when the Senate was on recess.

Senator Melaye, a pro-Saraki senator, was said to have expressed anger over the trial of Saraki and Ekweremadu for alleged forgery of Senate Standing Rules 2011.
