BREAKING: FG files charges against Senators Ekweremadu, Akpan

The Federal Government has filed two charges against the Deputy Senate
President, Ike Ekweremadu and Senator Albert Bassey Akpan (Akwa Ibom
North-East) for allegedly failing to declare some of their assets.

The charges marked: FHC/ABJ/CR/62/2018 (for Ekweremadu) and
FHC/ABJ/CR/88/2018 (for Akpan) were filed before the Federal High
Court, Abuja on behalf of the Federal Government by the Special
Presidential Investigation Panel (SPIP).

The charge against Ekweremadu has been assigned to Justice Binta
Nyako, while the one against Akpan is assigned to Justice John Tsoho.

Both judges, on Wednesday, granted leave to the prosecution to serve
the charges and other accompanying court documents on the defendants
through the Clerk of the National Assembly.

The order for substituted service was granted by both judges after
listening to the prosecution lawyer, Celsus Upong, who complained of
difficulty in effecting personal service on the defendants.
