– Pro-Saraki senators are also planning to attack senators loyal to the cause of the AGF against the Senate


– Melaye denies impeachment plots as reported by Sahara Reporters

President Muhammadu Buhari has been threatened with impeachment by Nigerian senators, Sahara Reporters has informed.

This much happened during the plenary session on Tuesday, July 12, with the senators making their threats about the president known over the Senate forgery allegations scandal.

It was also gathered that Senator Dino Melaye threatened to ‘impregnate’ Remi Tinubu, wife of the Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Their anger stems from the proposed trial of the Senate leadership over forgery, a case for which Senate president, Bukola Saraki; his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, and other officers were recently charged to court.
Some senators were said to have called on their colleagues, led by Senators Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi (APC Kaduna North) and Kabir Marafa (APC Zamfara Central) to sheathe their sword and withdraw the petition that had led to the prosecution of Senate leadership.

The Saraki-led session had also reminded the Senate that a committee led by his predecessor, David Mark was set up to reunite the members.

But the Benue-born politician denied ever being a member of any such committee, adding that he had no idea who the members of the committee were as he was just doing his work.

Senator Melaye from Kogi state also insisted that Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) be brought before the senators, thoroughly grilled and humiliated because of the allegations he has charged the leadership of the Senate with.

The outspoken lawmaker therefore called on his colleagues to fight the presidency and also reportedly issued a lot of threats during the rowdy session and when Senator Tinubu was asked to speak, she said the Senate should not be reduced to a kindergarten where Senators could just issue childish threats.

Reports say after she had appealed to senators to close ranks and seek reconciliation, Melaye got really mad and started calling the former governor’s wife names.

He threatened: “I will beat you up on this floor and nothing will happen.”
This reaction by Melaye was said to have triggered more commotion on the floor of the house as some senators were said to have rallied around her to protect her while Saraki reportedly continued nodding in acknowledgment while the Kogi senator continued calling the woman names.

Sahara Reporters sources informed that Senator Aliyu Wamakko from Sokoto had hosted series of meetings in an alleged plot to impeach the president in a couple of days.

Some senators were also reported to have threatened those behind the current forgery trial just as Senator Melaye threatened to kill anybody who testifies against the leadership in court.

Meanwhile, reports emerged a few hours after the rowdy session that the AGF was spotted at the complex of the National Assembly.
WorldEars sources informed that details of the meeting were unknown but feelers have it that the meeting may not be unconnected to the impasse between the presidency and the Nigerian Senate.
Senator Melaye has since denied the reports that he threatened to beat up Tinubu, and also added that there was no such thing as them plotting an impeachment of the president.
 In a statement released by the senator on Wednesday morning, Melaye said his alleged involvement in some moves to impeach the president of the federal republic of Nigeria is “untrue and malicious”.
