Senator Sani Condemns Police, DSS Ambush To Saraki’s House
Senator Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna Central has condemned the laying of siege by the police and the operatives of the Department of State Service to the homes of the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki and Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
He said, “The siege on the House of the Senate President and the invasion of the House of the Deputy Senate President is an utterly condemnable Act. It rubbishes the image of the Government & undermines our democracy.”
He noted that his home was not barricaded as it was reported alongside that of the Senate president on Tuesday, adding that some plainclothesmen only visited his home to ask for him.
As he put it, “My house is not under siege but I’ve received calls that ‘some plainclothesmen’ just came to my Abuja residence asking of me after I’ve have left for office. I’m available. I’m a Revolutionary. We’ve been through this in the years of the Struggle.”
Sani also condemned the failure of the government to address the killings along Kaduna-Abuja Road.
He said, “The only time Kaduna Abuja road became safe was when both local and international flights were diverted from Abuja to Kaduna.
“To secure the lives of the elites, the road was fully renovated and enough funds were released to the security agencies. The volume of bloodshed in our country is enough to power a turbine engine. No tears enough to mourn the ‘frequency of deaths resulting from the killings’. Professor Halima Sadiya Idris; Killed along with others along the Kaduna Abuja road. Its killings and kidnappings every day. Life is cheaper than sachet water today. The Government has failed the people on this road. I will raise it on the floor of the senate, Insha Allah,” he said.
