Senate head suspects police plot to implicate him

Following Saraki's accusation, the Senate resolved that the Senate president should lead a delegation to relay the concerns raised on the floor.

In the revelation that appears similar to what Senator Dino Melaye is alleging, Saraki accused IGP Idris of directing the Kwara State Police Commissioner to transfer the cultism suspects, who were arrested in the state, to Abuja in order to have their submission to the police altered.

The Kwara State Police Command had last week paraded the son of a former Police image maker in Kwara State among six suspected.

Abolaji Safti Ojulari of Kankatu area, Ilorin, Lanre Mohammed Soliu a.k.a Askari of Ile Nda Compound, Ilorin, Azeez Moyaki of Moyaki Compound, Gambari Area Ilorin, Suleiman Babatunde of Gambari Area, Ilorin, Yusuf Habeeb of Kangile Village, Kulende, Ilorin and Umar Yahaya of Kangile Village, Kulende, Ilorin.

The Senate President said he had the information that the plan was to implicate him in the trial.

The police also listed the 11 victims of the alleged hired assassins as Bukola Ajikobi, Azeez Lawal and Bayo Ajia, all killed between 2016 and 2018 in Ilorin.

One after the other, senators called for a thorough investigation into the matter.

The Senate President told his colleagues at the commencement of plenary that he has been informed by Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara State that the IGP had asked for the transfer of some cult members arrested in Ilorin to Abujaā€ˇ for the goal.

The information reaching [the Kwara State Governor] as he received from the Inspector General of Police, is that they had been directed by the IGP to bring them to Abuja.

According to Mr Saraki, the report indicated that Mr Idris was planning to move some persons already investigated in the state to Abuja where they would be made to change their earlier statements and implicate him (Saraki) in criminal acts. "They will then be made to implicate the Kwara State Government, and in particular, myself, in their new statement" he claimed.

He reported that the plot was part of a strategy by the police to settle scores over the declaration by the senate that the IGP was not qualified and competent to hold any public office.

"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 can not be made to obey the law, follow due process and subject themselves to constituted authorities".

"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 actions".
