[PHOTOS] Governor Shettima Leads Borno Monarchs To Beg Saraki Over Ndume Suspension


Borno state governor, Kashim Shettima, on Friday, led a high-powered delegation from Borno state to Senate President Bukola Saraki in Abuja.

The visit came two days after the senate handed a six-month suspension to Ali Ndume, a senator from the state.

The ethics and privileges committee had recommended Ndume’s suspension because he moved a motion that Saraki and Dino Melaye, senator representing Kogi west, be investigated.

Saraki was accused of harassing Hameed Ali, comptroller-general of customs, because the agency seized a vehicle belonging to him.

Melaye was said to have forged a certificate of his degree from the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria.
