•Senate President Bukola Saraki, and Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Federal Government are shopping for a fraudulent interim court order to declare vacant, the seat of the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, following his defection from the APC to the PDP.

The PDP alerted in Abuja on Friday that credible information at its disposal showed that some “cabals” in the Presidency and APC had perfected a plan to institute a lawsuit to challenge the validity of Saraki’s seat with the sole aim of securing a fraudulent injunction to force him out of office pending the determination of the substantive suit.

A statement issued by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary said further intelligence available to the party shows that once they are able to secure the injunction from a particular compromised judicial officer, they intend to arraign and detain the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, on trumped-up charges and ensure he is not granted bail so as to keep him out of circulation while their men would move in to effect an illegal leadership change in the Senate.

The party, therefore, called on Nigerians and the international community to be on the alert as the conspirators plan to commence the execution of this evil plot from Tuesday next week.
