residence was also alleged by the
spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP), Kola Ologbondiyan, in a
tweet on Tuesday morning, July 24
The Senate may not hold its plenary
today, Tuesday, July 24, if Ekweremadu is
detained since the deputy senate

general of police, Ibrahim Idris , to
appear at the office of intelligence
response team in Abuja over the robbery
incident which took place in Offa, Kwara
state in April.
