– Ekweremadu said he received a letter from a concerned Nigerian revealing the alleged plot
– The senators want the EFCC and other agencies called to order
Speaking in during a press briefing after close of Senate plenary at the National Assembly complex on Wednesday, May 3, the senators said they would resist such moves.
The senators expressed worries at the report that the highest ranking PDP lawmaker in Nigeria was about to be detained by security forces.
NAIJ.com reported earlier that Ekweremadu raised the alarm that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has perfected plans to invade his country home in Enugu.
According to Ekweremadu, the anti-graft commission wants to carry out the operation under the guise of searching for looted funds. He alleged that they have plans to plant money and ammunition in his apartment during the raid.
During plenary on Wednesday, Ekweremadu read a letter reportedly written to him by an unnamed Nigerian, informing him of the EFCC’s plans.
He said the move is to force him out of office and give the impression that he is a corrupt politician, unfit to hold any public office.
He said plans have also been perfected by EFCC to use groups to protest in major cities across the country, calling for his resignation and prosecution.
