Abuja - Two All Progressives Congress (APC) Senators, Kabiru Marafa and Ali Wakili on Tuesday exchanged hot words over the composition of the Senate Standing and Special committees, reports Daily Trust.
Trouble started when Marafa walked out of the Chambers in protest that Senate President, Bukola Saraki ruled him out of order when he reopened debate on how the Senate Standing Committees were formed.
The Zamfara Central lawmaker had last week told the Senate that because Saraki failed to subject the constitution of the committees to the approval of the Senate, the committees were illegal and non existent.

Marafa, who rushed to the Press Corps, intending to address the press on the matter, was immediately interrupted by Wakili, who followed him.
At the press centre, Wakili literally pointed at Marafa and accused him of disgracing the Senate with his behavior.
A visibly angry Marafa fired back at Wakili, saying he was not working for anybody.
The verbal exchange between the two senators continued and at the end of it, the press conference could not hold.
