Offa Robbery: IGP rescinds, no longer asks Saraki to appear at the station
By Ehi Ekhator
The Nigerian Police on Monday rescinds on its invitation to the Nigerian Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki.
The Senate President would now respond to questions regarding the robbery in Offa, Kwara State in April through writing instead of appearing in person.
The decision may not be unconnected to the closed-door meeting held by the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo with the Police chief, Ibrahim Idris and the Head of State Security Service, Lawal Daura, at the State House.
Saraki announced the development on his Facebook page on Monday.
“Following my earlier post, I have received the letter from the Police. They are no longer asking me to appear at any station, but to respond in writing to the allegations within 48 hours.
Despite the social media buzz, Saraki had announced that he was yet to be invited officially by the police.
The police say some arrested suspected in the Offa robbery fingered Saraki as their sponsors.
