Offer Robbery: Police Interrogate Saraki In His Office At NASS
President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki was on Thursday grilled by a team of detectives from the Nigeria Police right inside his office at the National Assembly Complex.
This was disclosed by the aide of Saraki on New Media, Mr Olu Onemola. He tweeted that the Senate president was interrogated.
The police had earlier written a letter on July 23, inviting Saraki but the Senate president replied to the letter, stating his position on Offa robbery and why he would not be able to visit the police.
“Dr Saraki used the opportunity to reiterate the fact that he had nothing to do with either the robbery incident on April 5, 2018, or any other criminal activity,” according to the Onemola’s tweet.
In his letter, Saraki said that he would align with President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive that the police should send their personnel to him (Saraki) for questioning or take his defence in writing.
As he put it, “You will recall that Mr President had earlier directed as a courtesy to this office, that in the event of any request for further information from me, you should either send your personnel to my office or obtain a written response from me.”
He also expressed worry about his personal security, adding that he was disturbed by the way the police harassed him when heavily armed cops besieged his residence a few days ago.
