The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has asked Senate President Bukola Saraki to appear at the office of intelligence response team (IRT) office in Abuja today Tuesday, July 24th, over the robbery incident that took place in Offa, Kwara state, on April 5th.
The attack claimed the lives of over 20 persons.
Reacting to the latest development, the Senate President Bukola Saraki said,‘I have been reliably informed that the police invitation was planned by the IG as a ploy to stop an alleged plan by some Senators and House of Representatives members from defecting from the All Progressives Congress (APC). The Police have obviously corrupted and politicized their investigations into the Offa robbery incident.
They have turned it into an instrument for the party in power to suppress perceived opponents’.
He also hinted at dumping the APC for PDPsaying, ‘this plot aimed at compelling me and my associates to stay in a party where members are criminalised without just cause, where injustice is perpetrated at the highest level and where there is no respect for constitutionalism is an exercise in futility and it will fail’.
