IGP Makes U-turn, Asks Saraki to write Instead


The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris has made a dramatic u-turn and is asking the Senate President, Bukola Saraki to write instead of making a physical appearance to defend himself, after he was fingered by gang leaders of the group that carried out the famous Offa Bank roberry.
Mr. Saraki disclosed this in a tweet this afternoon.
He wrote:
“Following my earlier tweet, I have received the letter from @PoliceNG. They are no longer asking me to appear at any station, but to respond in writing to the allegations within 48 hours — which I plan to do,” Mr Saraki said.
The announcement comes minutes after Vice President Yemi Osinbajo met behind closed-doors with Mr Saraki and police chief, Ibrahim Idris, as well as the head of State Security Service, Lawal Daura, at the State House.
It also comes about four hours after Mr Saraki announced he was yet to get a police invite.
Details shortly…
