from the Federal Ministry of Justice, Odubu Loveme.

Saraki and Ekweremadu, as well as a former Clerk of the
National Assembly, Salisu Maikasuwa, and a former Deputy

Halilu on June 10, 2016 via charge No. CR/219/16. They all
pleaded not guilty on July 27, 2016.

In the motion filed today, Loveme said counsel to the FG on
the matter, Aliyu Umar, on September 30 in the office of the
Director of Public Prosecution told him that he had studied
the case diary and “ had decided to amend the charge in the
manner stated on the face of the motion paper”.

Loveme added that he has, consequently, filed an amended
charge. He said Based on the amended charge, only
Maikasuwa and Efeturi would face prosecution…. as scape
goats.
