Senate Delegation Sets To Meet Buhari Today Over Saraki, IG Rift

Senate Delegation Sets To Meet Buhari Today Over Saraki, IG Rift

The Senate delegation will today Tuesday meet with President Muhammadu Buhari over an allegation by Senator Bukola Saraki against the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris. The Senate President, Saraki, had on Wednesday alleged that Idris planned to implicate him in the trial of some suspected cult members arrested in Kwara State.

According to report, a reliable source in the Senate said on Monday that the meeting will hold after Tuesday’s plenary. “The meeting with the President will hold tomorrow afternoon,” the source said on the condition of anonymity.

Members of the delegation to be led by Saraki are Majority Leader, Ahmad Lawan; Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio; Chief Whip, Sola Adeyeye; Senator Danjuma Goje, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, Senator Samuel Egwu, Senator Aliyu Wamakko, Senator Fatima Raji-Rasaki and Senator Oluremi Tinubu.

The Senate had on Wednesday resolved to meet with Buhari to report the activities of the police boss to him, following Saraki’s allegation of the alleged plot by the IG to frame him in the case.

Saraki had told the lawmakers that he was informed by Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed that the suspects had been moved from Kwara State to Abuja for prosecution allegedly on the orders of the IG. He added that part of the plan was to doctor the statements made by the suspects to implicate him in the trial.

He said, “My distinguished colleagues, there is an issue which I need to bring to your attention very urgently.

“Last night, my state governor, Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed, revealed to me the information at his disposal that a group of suspects who had been arrested and were in police cells for several weeks in our state for cultism, and whose investigation had been concluded and were about to be under prosecution under the state law on the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions and the Ministry of Justice, have, all of a sudden, been ordered to be transferred to Abuja this morning.

“The information reaching me, as he received it from the Commissioner of Police, is that they (police) have been directed by the IG to bring them (suspects) to Abuja. With the information that he (Ahmed) has, it is for them to find how to alter their (the suspects’) statement already made in Ilorin and try and implicate the state government and particularly myself.

“As we speak now, those suspects are already here in Abuja. These acts, I don’t know whether to call it desperation, blackmail or intimidation. All the action to undermine our democracy is a recipe for anarchy because we are doing our work by asking officials to obey the law, due process and subject themselves to constituted authority.”

In the written speech, a part of which he read out at the plenary, Saraki linked the alleged plot to the invitations by the Senate to the IG, which the police boss did not answer in person.
