The report further revealed that Ekweremadu was moved to petition the foreign missions over what he described as attempt to truncate Nigeria’s democracy and “silence him as the leader and highest ranking member of the opposition in the country, all in the name of prosecuting an alleged forgery case.”

Ekweremadu pointed out that he wrote the international community, to decide whether or not the trial was justified, or just an act of political vendetta after it might have been perused.

The two-page petition, entitled: “Re: Trumped up charges against the presiding officers of the 8th Senate: Nigerian Democracy is in Grave Danger,” also had the PDP Senator attaching copies of the court summons and other relevant documents relating to the matter to his letter.

The Deputy Senate President also insisted that neither his name nor that of the president of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, featured in the petition filed by the aggrieved members of the Senate Unity Forum (SUF) or during the investigation of the petition by the police.
