Saraki meets Buhari over alleged plot by IGP to implicate him

Post by Kingseyi on Thu May 17, 2018 8:52 am

The President of the Senate Dr Bukola Saraki is set to meet
President Muhammadu Buhari to relay to him an alleged plot
by the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris to implicate
him (Saraki).
The President of the Senate is to lead the leadership of the
upper legislative chamber to meet with President Buhari over
the alleged plot which Saraki disclosed on the floor of the
Senate on Wednesday.
Saraki had raised the alarm on the floor of the Senate over a
plot by the IGP to implicate him using ‘coerced’ cultists.
“My Distinguished colleagues, there is an issue which I need
to bring to your attention very urgently. Last night, my State
Governor, Dr. Abdulfatai Ahmed revealed to me an information
at his disposal that a group of suspects who had been in
police cells for several weeks for cultism and whose
investigation had been concluded with prosecution about to
commence under the State law based on the advice of the
Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) and the Ministry of
Justice were ordered to be transferred to Abuja this morning.
“ According to the information available to the Governor, the
Inspector General of Police, Mr. Idris Ibrahim directed the
Commissioner of Police in Kwara State to immediately
transfer the men to the Force Headquarters.
“The plan, as the Governor was made to understand is that,
under duress, the suspects would be made to alter the
statements they already made in Ilorin. They will then be
made to implicate the Kwara State Government, and in
particular, myself, in their new statement.
“This plot is part of the strategy by the IGP Idris to settle
scores over the declaration by this honourable Chamber that
he is not qualified and competent to hold any public office,
within and outside the country and that he is an enemy of
Nigerian democracy based on his usual disrespectful conduct
towards lawful authorities.
“”In my own view, this plot is an act of desperation,
blackmail, intimidation, abuse of office and crude tactics
aimed at turning our country into a Police State where top
officials cannot be made to obey the law, follow due process
and subject themselves to constituted authorities.
“I want to bring this dangerous development to the attention
of all of you my colleagues, the entire country and the
international community so that you can be aware of the level
of impunity in our country and the danger it constitute to our
democracy,” the President of the Senate said.
Saraki explained that he was bringing the issue to the
attention of his colleagues to let them know the gravity of
the situation.
“I know the gravity of the issue that is why I am bringing it
to your attention and to continue to let our colleagues and
the world know presently the danger we are going with and
the levels of the rascality that is going on with some of these
“I have brought it to your attention and we must continue to
play our own role in doing what we believe in the course of
our duty.
“It is very unfortunate but that it the information I have as of
now,” the President of the Senate said.
The Senate resolved that the Senate President should lead a
delegation to relay the concerns raised on the floor by Saraki.
The delegation would consist of the Senate President, the
Senate Leader, Senator Ahmad Lawan; the Chief Whip,
Senator Olusola Adeyeye; and the Minority Leader, Senator
Godswill Akpabio.
Other members of the delegation would included Senator
Danjuma Goje, Senator Sam Anyanwu, Senator Aliyu
Wammako, Senator Fatima Raji Rasaki, and Senator Oluremi
