Officials of the Ministry of Justice confirmed that the two accused would be appearing in court today.
More doubt though has been raised after court officials claimed that Saraki and his co-accused were not formally served with the charges preferred against them by the Federal Government.
The Senate according to reports, have sensationally accused President Muhammadu Buhari of plotting to remove Saraki and Ekweremadu.
