Saraki Alleges Plot By IGP To Implicate Him

Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idris

President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, has told the chamber that the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, allegedly plans to implicate him in the trial of some crime suspects arrested in Kwara State.

Bukola Sariki said the Kwara state Governor, Abdulfatai Ahmed, informed him that a group of suspects who had been in police cells for several weeks for cultism and whose investigation had been concluded with the prosecution about to commence under the state law were ordered to be transferred to Abuja on Wednesday morning.

"The Force therefore wishes to categorically state that, there is no iota of truth in the allegation and false assertion by the Senate President of plot against him by the IGP to implicate the Kwara State Government and the Senate President in any criminal matter".

Saraki said he felt obliged to share the information with his colleagues because of the gravity of the matter and the grave danger it portends to Nigeria's democracy.

"The information that he has is for them to try to see how they will alter the statement that they already made in Ilorin and try to implicate the State Government and particularly myself".

Speaking at plenary on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, Saraki said some cultists whose investigation had been completed and awaiting prosecution have been ordered to be transferred to Abuja by IGP Idris. I feel that as we speak now, these suspects are already here in Abuja.

"These acts I don't know whether to call it desperation or intimidation".

Parents charged after police find 10 children living in faeces, garbage
Solano County Public defenders office did not respond immediately to request for information on legal representation for Allen. The charges allege that she caused the children to be in a situation that was likely to produce great bodily injury and death.

"I think it is important to call your attention to this risky development".

While some asked that the panel be made up of members of the Senate and House of Representatives, others asked that the leadership of the Senate should rather meet with Buhari to report the matter to him.

All actions to undermine our democracy are a recipe for anarchy because we are doing our work tasking officials to obey the law, due process and subject themselves to constitutional authority.

Saraki raised the alarm on the floor of the Senate today, with the Senate resolving to send a 12-man delegation to discuss the matter with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Godswill Akpabio, the Senate minority leader, raising a point of order, moved that the issue be debated and a resolution taken.

Others in the committee are senators Danjuma Goje, Samuel Anyanwu, Raji Rasaki, Aliyu Wammako, Oluremi Tinubu and Abdullahi Adamu.
