IGP Idris wants to use cultists to implicate me -Saraki

President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, has told the chamber that the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, allegedly plans to implicate him in the trial of some crime suspects arrested in Kwara State.

The Senate President told his colleagues at the commencement of plenary that he has been informed by Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara State that the IGP had asked for the transfer of some cult members arrested in Ilorin to Abuja‎ for the objective.

The Senate President said the Kwara state governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, disclosed the happenings to him on Tuesday night.

The Senate is still discussing appropriate response to the information as at the time of writing this story.

The Police said the statement credited to the Senate President can discourage living victims and deceased families of those who must have been killed by the gang from coming forward to give evidence against them.

Saraki had raised the alarm on the floor of the Senate over a plot by the IGP to implicate him using "coerced cultists".

Therefore, transferring this hired assassin gang masquerading as cultists in Kwara State to Force Headquarters, Abuja for further investigation is in accordance with Police investigation procedures.

President Donald Trump abandoned the pact he branded "the worst deal ever" and reimposed U.S. sanctions on Iran. She said situation will not improve after Washington's withdrawal from the deal.

"The information reaching him from the commissioner of police that they have been directed by IGP to bring them to Abuja".

Mr Saraki stepped down from presiding to allow his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, to preside as advised by Ibn Na'Allah. With the information that he has, they would find how to alter their statement already made in Ilorin and try and implicate the state government and particularly myself.

Saraki said: "My Distinguished Colleagues, there is an issue I need to bring to your attention urgently".

All actions to undermine our democracy are a recipe for anarchy because we are doing our work tasking officials to obey the law, due process and subject themselves to constitutional authority.
