Following the alleged forgery case against the Senate Leadership, reports have emerged of the Senate’s plan to expel Ita Enang, the Senior Special Assistant to the President National Assembly Matters (Senate).

Six senators,  Kabiru Marafa, Suleiman Hunkuyi, Ahmed Lawan, Ajayi Borofice, Gbenga Ashafa and Abdullahi Gumel, will also be sanctioned by the Nigerian Senate.

The Senate plans to sanction the six senators for their willingness to be lined up as prosecution witness in the alleged senate forgery case, Premium Times reports.

A top official of the Senate disclosed that the leadership of the red chamber felt betrayed by Mr. Enang and the six members.

The source said: “The body language of the leadership and most members is that the affected members should be suspended while Ita Enang should be expelled

“Ita Enang cannot be giving credence to the allegation that the Senate leaders are forgers and criminals and still interface between the Senate and the presidency.

“He has only two options. He either steps down as presidential liaison officer to the Senate and proceed to testify or be expelled. He cannot testify against the Senate leadership and still remain as a liaison between the president and the upper legislature.”

The accused were on June 27, arraigned before Justice Haliru Yusuf of the Federal Capital Territory High Court, Jabi, on a two-count charge of conspiracy and forgery, contrary to Sections 97 and 362 of the Penal Code Law respectively.
