The Deputy Senator along with Senate President, Bukola Saraki were arraigned on charges of alleged forgery for manipulating the 2015 Senate Standing Rules that saw the two men voted into power.

News24 Nigeria reported that Saraki and his deputy, Ekweremadu were awarded bail under stringent conditions with the two lambasting the attempted attempts by powerful men to tarnish them as two law abiding citizens.
