The Senators who met behind closed doors were incensed by the proposed trial of the leadership of the Senate for forgery.
Shortly after commencement of a plenary session,Â Senator Dino Melaye (APC Kogi West) said in his remarks that the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, must be brought before the Senate to be thoroughly grilled and humiliated for charging the Senate leadership with forgery in court.
Mr. Melaye called on the Senators in attendance to fight the
presidency to a standstill. Â In his rant, he issued a
wide variety of threats.
Recognized to speak, Senator Remi Tinubu (APC) Lagos Central said the Senate should not be reduced to a kindergarten where Senators could just issue childish threats, and called on Senators to close ranks and seek reconciliation amongst its members.
That was when Melaye flew into rage, calling her names.
â€œI will beat you up on this floor and nothing will happen,â€ he threatened.
The statement caused a commotion on the floor as Senators in her
support gathered to protect her. Senate President Saraki nodded as
Melaye called mrs. Tinubu unprintable names according to Senators
who intervened to save her from the rampaging Melaye.
Leading the offensive in support of Melaye were Senators Danjuma Goje, Jibrin Barau, Isa Misau and Peter Nwaoboshi.
A source told SaharaReporters there had been a series of
meetings at the home of Senator Aliyu Wamakko (APC, Sokoto) to plot
a total onslaught on President Buhari in the coming days.
In addition, the Senators held to be behind the current forgery trial were threatened by the like-minded Senators, with Melaye threatening to kill anyone who shows up in court to testify against Saraki and Ekweremadu.
The rancor between the Senate and the Presidency is expected to escalate leading to a summons to the new Inspector General of Police who will be forced to declare AGF Malami wanted if he refuses to show up at the Senate from there it was gathered that Senators opposed to Buhari would start impeachment proceedings against him.
Senators who spoke to SaharaReporters said the Senators supporting Saraki are united in crime and corruption because theyâ€™ve never had it so good, with over N260 billion padded into the budget in constituency projects, and sundry line items smuggled into the 2016 budget for their individual benefit.
