DEPUTY Senate President Ike Ekweremadu on Wednesday raised alarm over alleged plans by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC to storm his house, plant huge amount of money and implicate him.
According to Ekweremadu who came under point of Order, Order 43 of the Senate Standing Rules said that the money the EFCC intends to put in his house when the anti- graft agency storms his house or one of the guests houses on Saturday, May 6th, 2017 will include British pound stilling, US dollars, Indian Rupee, South Africa rand and Malaysian Ringgit.
Meanwhile, strong indications have emerged that some elements in the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, alongside some cabals in the presidency are plotting for the impeachment of Senator Ike Ekweremadu as deputy Senate President which may explain the planned raid.
The raid as gathered may not be unconnected to the role played by the South East senate caucus played in the release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu over the weekend.
The South East senate caucus reportedly held meeting at the residence of the Deputy President of the Senate in Abuja where decisions were taken on how to meet up with the stringent bail conditions for the IPOB leader.
