The Federal government will file fresh charges against the Senate President and his deputy on the forgery of Senate statues once police is done investigating.
The Federal Government withdrew the suit it initially filed against the principal officers last week. And now it’s clear what its intentions are.
According to a report by Vanguard, “it would have been wrong to have pressed ahead with the case when the police are yet to conclude their investigations.”
This statement is accredited to a Justice Ministry official.
“The Federal Government considered it appropriate to withdraw the case and conclude the investigation and attach both the statements by the accused and the witnesses before filing fresh charges against the suspects,” the official states.
“We want to strengthen our position and present a solid case against the suspects as required under the Criminal Justice Administration Act.”
