Senate President Discloses Plot to Implicate Him

Senate President says IGP plans to Implicate Him
The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has disclosed that the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Idris Ibrahim, has allegedly devised a plot to implicate him and the Governor of Kwara State, using cultists. He made the disclosure during today’s plenary of the Senate.

Read his full disclosure:

“My distinguished colleagues, there is an issue which I need to bring to your attention urgently. Last night, my State Governor, Dr Abdulfatai Ahmed, revealed to me information at his disposal that “a group of suspects who had been in police cells for several weeks for cultism and whose investigation has 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 all of a sudden 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 would then be made to implicate the state government, and in particularly myself, in their new statement. As we speak now, these suspects are already in Abuja here. “

“This plot is part of the strategy by the IGP Idris to settle scores over the declaration by this honorable chamber that he is not qualified and competent to hold any public office within and outside this country and that he is an enemy of Nigerian democracy based on his usual disrespectful conduct towards duly constituted 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.”

“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 entire world know presently the danger we are going with and the levels of the rascality that is going on with some of these actions. 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 is the information I have as of now.”
