Senate to probe alleged certificate forgery of Melaye, and  Saraki’s N298m Range Rover import duty underpayment

The Senate on Tuesday agreed to suggestion by former Majority Leader of the Senate, Ali Ndume, to probe the allegation of certificate forgery against Senator Dino Melaye and that of the N298m worth armoured Range Rover said to belong to the President of the Senate, Senator Bukola Saraki but seized by the Nigeria Customs Service over import duty underpayment.

“One has to do with the distinguished Senator Bukola Saraki, the Senate President, and it was reported in a paper; I have it here. With your permission, I will want to, after making presentation, lay it down. It says that, ‘Senate on Vengeance After Nigeria Customs seized Senator Saraki’s bulletproof Range Rover Over Fake Documents.”

“My colleagues that are following events, particularly online, have seen, heard or read the rain of abuses on this Senate and the misconception of the fact that we invited the Customs CG based on a very unpopular policy that affects the people we represent,” Ndume said at the plenary while proposing to Senate to investigate both Saraki and Melaye over the allegations.

Citing the cases of the 4th Assembly when Salisu Buhari was investigated and removed over certificate forgery, the 5th Assembly when Bello Masari was investigated over certificate forgery and Adolphus Wabara over alleged bribery, Ndume urged the senate to probe the allegations against Saraki and Melaye.
