IGP planning to implicate me in murder case - Saraki

Saraki said he felt obliged to share the information with his colleagues because of the gravity of the matter and the grave danger it portends to Nigeria's democracy.

Senate President Bukola Saraki says Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of police (IGP), is planning to implicate him.

Speaking on the order raised by the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, Senate Leader, described the meeting with the President as "the best", as it gives the lawmakers an opportunity to lay their complain directly to the Commander in Chief.

But the police through the Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, in reaction to Sarak's allegations, Wednesday evening, said it was true that the police have transferred the suspects linked to a string of killings in Kwara State to Abuja.

He explained that on May 11, the Kwara Police Command arrested six suspects for killing 11 persons.

Others were Segun (Surname unknown) killed in September, 2017 at Kankatu area of Ilorin; Wasiu (Surname unknown) killed in September 29, 2016 at Shao Garage of Ilorin; Musiliu (Surname unknown) killed in February, 2018 at Shao Area Ilorin; Bayo Ajia, killed in January 18, 2018 at Taiwo Road, Ilorin; Another Lateef killed in January 2016 at Baboko Area of Ilorin; Abbey a student of Kwara Polytechnic killed in April, 2017 at Niger Road, Ilorin and Lanre (Surname unknown) killed on 23rd August, 2015 at Isale Aluko Area of Ilorin.

However, it is pertinent to state that, there is no vested interest by the Inspector General of Police in the ongoing investigation into the several murders committed by this killer gang, other than ensuring that justice prevails in the matter.

"All of a sudden they have been ordered to be transferred to Abuja this morning".

They expressed fear that the move is similar to the ordeal meted to the embattled chairman, Senate Committee on Federal Capital Territory, Dino Melaye, who was transferred from Abuja to Kogi State by the police on charges bordering on illegal possession of firearms and gun running.

But Moshood said the transfer was not because of Senate President. They will then be made to implicate the Kwara State Government, and in particular, myself, in their new statement.

A statement by PDP's spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan reads, "We have taken judicious note of assertions by the Senate President that the said plot is allegedly being hatched by the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Idris Ibrahim, "to settle scores" with the Senate over its recent declaration that he is not fit to hold public office".

All actions to undermine our democracy (are) 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.
