Police Blocks Saraki’s Convoy

Policemen on Tuesday morning blocked the convoy of the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki at Lake Chad Junction, Maitama, Abuja.

Effort to get the reaction of the Police over this latest move proves abortive as at the time of filing this report.

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) on Monday sent an invitation letter to Saraki asking him to appear before investigators in Abuja tomorrow, July 24.

A letter of invitation signed by the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim ‎Idris, indicates that Saraki is expected to make himself physically available for interrogators at 8am.

The Senate President is expected to answer questions in the case of Offa bank robbery and murder of more than 31 persons, including the snatching of 21 AK 47 Riles on 5th of April 2018.

Meanwhile Saraki has stated that the invitation to him by the Police to report to a station in Guzape over the Offa robbery investigation is a mere afterthought which is designed to achieve political purpose.

Saraki in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, stated that he has it on good authority that the Police had already decided on the suspects to arraign in court in Ilorin, Kwara State on Wednesday based on the advice of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), Mohammed U.E. and that the turn around to invite him was a ploy aimed at scoring cheap political points.
