The senate, Tuesday, directed its committee on ethics and privileges to investigate an alleged seizure of a bulletproof car allegedly owned by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki but was seized by the Nigerian Customs, a reason claimed to be why ‘Saraki is allegedly witch-hunting the Customs boss, Hameed Ali.’

Recall that the Senate had summoned the Customs boss, Mr. Ali to appear before it in uniform over the customs’ planned enforcement of duty on old cars.

But Mr. Ali appeared before the senate in civilian attire and was asked to leave the Senate chamber and reappear before it in Customs uniform.

However, there were insinuations that the senate was being hard on Ali because the customs had seized a sport utility vehicle (SUV) of Saraki.

Consequently, the upper chamber decided to investigate Saraki and his close ally, Sen. Dino Melaye (APC, Kogi) over false certificate claims pertaining to the seized car.

Senate decision followed a motion sponsored by the immediate-past Senate Leader, Ali Ndume (APC, Borno) which called for the probe of both men.
