The plan to conduct the screening of the Acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, today is causing confusion at the Senate with two prominent lawmakers almost exchanging blows.

Sources said that the usual pre-session meeting of the principal officers, which holds at the Senate President’s office, became rowdy as senators were said to have engaged themselves in a shouting match.

A source who witnessed the clash said the Leader of the Senate, Senator Ali Ndume and Senator Dino Melaye, who was alleged to be against Magu’s confirmation, specifically engaged themselves at the meeting and it almost degenerated into an exchange of blows.

Although the screening had been listed on the Order Paper as part of activities at the chamber today, it is uncertain if the exercise will hold due to the latest development as the lawmakers are currently in a close-door executive session over the matter.

Meanwhile, Magu, who reportedly arrived the National Assembly complex earlier in preparation for the screening is said to be holed up in the office of the Senior Special Adviser to the President on Senate.
