Just In:Security siege lifted at Ekweremadu’s home as 40 senators visit

Some senators on Tuesday visited Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, to solidarise with him on his travails with security agencies.


Senators Ben Murray Bruce, Rabiu Kwankwaso, Suleiman Adokwe, Philip Aduda, Dino Melaye were among the over 40 senators who visited Mr Ekweremadu.

The senators proceeded to the residence of their colleague immediately after Tuesday’s plenary.

By the time of the visit, the siege on Mr Ekweremadu’s home had been lifted with normalcy returning to the area.

Some protesters loyal to Mr Ekweremadu were seen carrying placards at the entrance of the building.

PREMIUM TIMES earlier reported the security siege on Mr Ekweremadu’s house. Security operatives from the police and the SSS mounted the siege. Evidence later emerged that he had been summoned to appear before the anti-graft agency, EFCC, today.
