Ahead of Monday’s planned arraignment of Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki and his deputy Ike Ekweremadu over alleged Senate Rules forgery and Conspiracy, there are strong indications that the duo may be handed stringent bail conditions.
Both are scheduled to be arraigned before Justice Justice Yusuf Halilu of the Federal Capital Territory High Court on two-count charge of forgery and conspiracy to commit forgery. They were earlier billed to be arraigned last Tuesday but the plan was stalled.
However, a source at the Federal Ministry of Justice and Office of the Attorney General of the Federation claimed that Saraki and Ekweremadu will be given tough bail conditions which they might not meet.
He said ” I can tell you authoritatively that Saraki and Ekweremadu may be slammed with stringent bail condition on June 27.”*
