Senate constitutes team to meet Buhari over IGP’s ‘plot to frame’ Saraki

Senate constitutes team to meet Buhari over IGP’s ‘plot to frame’ Saraki

The senate has raised a nine-member delegation to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari over an allegation that Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of police (IGP), is plotting to implicate Senate President Bukola Saraki in the trial of some suspected cultists.

Saraki had alleged that the IGP ordered that the suspects arrested in Ilorin should be taken to Abuja where their statements will be altered to implicate him and the Kwara state government.

“With the information that he (Kwara governor), they would find how to alter their statement already made in Ilorin and try and implicate the state government and particularly myself. I feel that as we speak now, these suspects are already here in Abuja,” he said.

Ahmed Lawan, senate leader, said idea of raising a delegation to meet with the president “is the best”.

“Today would have been the best day for us to walk in and pass the 2018 budget but that’s not to be. I will subscribe to the idea that we don’t continue to beat a dead horse to constitute an ad-hoc committee to invite the police to explain or the IG. The idea of meeting Mr President to me is the best,” Lawan said.

“Let me say that some people could be taking advantage at certain points to do certain things that Mr President would have no idea. Therefore, it’s an opportunity for our delegation to meet Mr President to explain everything.”

Thereafter, Ike Ekweremadu, deputy senate president, who presided over the matter named a nine-member delegation that will meet with the president over the issue.

They are Saraki, Lawan, Olusola Adeyeye, chief whip; and Godswill Akpabio, minority leader.

Others are senators Danjuma Goje, Sam Anyanwu, Aliyu Wammako, Fatima Raji Rasaki and Oluremi Tinubu.
