“About weeks, the EFCC invited the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, to its workplace for questioning on a number of their typical trumped-up expenses and having waited because morning until approximately nighttime, he said he changed into worn-out and desired to head home. But they refused to allow him to pass beside the symptoms-specific task.
“But while this argument subsisted, someone walked in. It becomes Ndume, seemingly planned as a twist of fate. Sighting Ekweremadu, he started appearing as though he turned into truly worried, querying why they stored him there for that lengthy.
“To cut a lengthy story brief, Ndume alone signed N1 billion bail bond for Ekweremadu without much ado. Technically, the DSP is now indebted to him.

“This is why we are saying to Magu, sufficient of this harassment of Saraki. Some of Saraki’s houses the fee just marked for seizure had been the same houses that the Supreme Court had cleared the Senate president for.
Whatever Magu is looking for once more, the Senate president wishes to approach the courts too are seeking prison protection from dealers of the nation running private errands on the strength of their workplace otherwise the state is fast failing.”
