Abuja - The Senate on Tuesday invited the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami to come and explain why it is necessary for him to drag Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, to court over alleged forgery of the Senate Standing Rules, reports Punch.

The summon follows a motion by Senator Dino Melaye, (Kogi West) titled: “Imminent threat to our democracy,” 

Senators after listening to the motion resolved to invite Malami to explain why he allegedly disregarded and reopened the alleged forgery case against Saraki and others when a court of competent jurisdiction had struck it out.

The Senate said Justice Gabriel Kolawole of Abuja High Court adjudicated and ruled on the matter, affirming that the issue is an internal affair of the Senate.

Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over the session, asked the Judiciary committee, to summon Malami, within 48 hours and interrogate him on the issue.
