The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris is plotting against the Senate President, who called for sanctions against him after refusing to appear before the National Assembly three times.
Mr Idris was asked to come to NASS to “give a report on the incessant killings happening in the country,” but he refused to do so, claiming that he “owes no apology to any individual.”
For refusing to obey constituted authority, the police chief was declared an “enemy of democracy and unfit to hold any public office within and outside the country.”
Vexed by the Senate’s decision, Mr Idris it is seems has devised plans to implicate Senator Saraki, by using a criminal case involving alleged cultist.
The shocking plan was laid bare by Senator Saraki, a former Governor of Kwara state, at the Senate plenary session in the National Assembly today.
Senator Saraki said: “There is an issue I need to bring to your attention urgently. Last night, my state governor, revealed to me an information at his disposal that a group of suspects who have been arrested in our state for cultism, whose investigation has been completed and were about to be under prosecution under the state law on the advise of the ministry of justice, all of a sudden were ordered to be transferred to Abuja this morning.
“The information reaching him from the commissioner of police that they have been directed by IGP to bring them to Abuja. 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. I feel that as we speak now, these suspects are already here in Abuja.
“These acts I don’t know whether to call it desperation or intimidation, all actions to undermine our democracy, 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.
“I think it is important to call your attention to this dangerous development. The impunity happeneing in this country is a danger to our democracy.”
Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, who represents Taraba South constituency said a committee should be constituted to meet with the President on the matter.
Kabiru Marafa, Senator for Zamfara Central agreed, saying: “I will suggest that we set up a joint committee to investigate and elders statesmen to have a meeting with the President to discuss the issue.”
