The arraignment of Nigeria’s Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu before an Abuja High Court on a two-count charge bordering on forgery and conspiracy of the Senate Standing Rules during the 2015 Senate Leadership Election has been stalled.

Saraki and EkweremaduCourt officials revealed that they stopped the trial because the Senate President and his Deputy have not been appropriately served court summons.

Bukola Saraki, Ike Ekweremadu, as well as the ex Clerk of the National Assembly, Salisu Abubakar Maikasuwa and his deputy, Benedict Efeturi are been indicted of faking the Senate Standing Rule that assisted Saraki and Ekweremadu to emerge as leaders of the Senate last year.
