The Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami has appeared before the Senate after the upper legislative chamber threatened to issue an arrest warrant to compel him to appear before the red chamber.

The AGF was at the venue of the meeting with the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal even before members of the Committee.

Malami, who was summoned by the lawmakers to explain why he had dragged the Senate’s principal officers to court for alleged forgery, said that the ‘issue before them is a criminal case against certain members of the Senate’ and not the entire senate, insisting that the police conducted investigation into the case on July 2015 while he was appointed in November 2015.

The AGF stated that the first case on the forgery was a Federal High Court case initiated by some Senators even before his appointment as AGF.

Malami maintained that as the AGF, he works for the sustenance of Nigeria’s democracy.

The Senate had in their first plenary session after the Eid-el-fitri break, threatened to issue an arrest warrant on the AGF after he failed to appear before its Committee on Judiciary and Human Rights.

Although he sent a representative, the Committee refused to grant the representative any audience.
