The Senator representing Kaduna central senatorial district, Senator Shehu Sani, has enlightened the Senate President Dr. Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu on how to live in prison.
Sani, who is the chairman of the Senate committee on local and foreign debts, acquired his knowledge after spending four years in different prisons across the country during the era of late General Sani Abacha and was reported to have lectured Saraki and Ekweremadu during their forgery case on Monday, June 27.
According to a senator who was present at the court, Sani tutored the accused persons on prison do’s and don’ts when Justice Yusuf Halilu stood down the forgery suit for one hour. He said:

“Sani came and lectured the presiding officers on life in the prison. He told them that in the prison there is ranking rule like at the National Assembly. He advised them to cooperate with the Governor in the prison.
“He said after registration, they will be given plates for meals. Sani also told them that they are going to share toilet, bathroom with other inmates and that it is the Governor of the prison that will allocate bed space to them”.
When Senator Shehu Sani was contacted, he confirmed dishing out lectures to the men on life in prison. His words:
“Yes, is anything bad in what I did? They are my colleagues and as a former inmate, I felt I should educate them on how to live in the prison, so that they will not be caught unaware.”
The Senate leaders are being tried at a Federal High Court in Abuja over allegedly forging the Senate standing rules used on June 9, 2015 to conduct the election that brought them to office as principal officers of the Senate.
Saraki and Ekweremadu were granted bail on Monday, after they were arraigned and pleaded not guilty to the two count charge of criminal conspiracy and forgery and the presiding judge adjourned the case to Monday, July 11.
