Senators this afternoon walked out President Muhammadu Buhari’s Adviser on prosecution, Chief Okoi Obono Obla, who represented the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Mallami, during a hearing on the Senate Rules forgery case.
The Senate had penultimate Tuesday summoned Mallami over the forgery suit following a motion sponsored by Senator Dino Melaye (APC, Kogi West).
Obla, who is attached to the Ministry of Justice, represented Mallami, but the
Chairman of senate committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, Senator David Umaru, asked him to leave, saying, “we invited the AGF not you, so please excuse.”
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, outgoing Clerk to the National Assembly, Alhaji Salisu Maikasuwa and the Deputy Clerk, Ben Efeturi, are being tried at the FCT High Court.
