In his words, “My distinguished colleagues, here is an issue which I need to bring to your attention very urgently.

” Last night, my state governor, Dr. Abdulfatai Ahmed revealed to me an information at his disposal that a group of suspects who had been in police cells for several weeks for cultism and whose investigation had been concluded with prosecution about to commence under the state law based on the advice of the Director of Public Prosecution, DPP, and the Ministry of Justice were ordered to be transferred to Abuja this morning.

“According to the information available to the governor, the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Idris Ibrahim directed the Commissioner of Police in Kwara state to immediately transfer the men to the force headquarters. The plan, as the governor was made to understand is that, under duress, the suspects would be made to alter the statements they already made in Ilorin. They will then be made to implicate the Kwara state government, and in particular, myself, in their new statement.

“This plot is part of the strategy by the IGP to settle scores over the declaration by this honourable chamber that he is not qualified and competent to hold any public office, within and outside the country and that he is an enemy of Nigerian democracy based on his usual disrespectful conduct towards lawful authorities.

“In my own view, this plot is an act of desperation, blackmail, intimidation, abuse of office and crude tactics aimed at turning our country into a police state where top officials cannot be made to obey the law, follow due process and subject themselves to constituted authorities.

“I want to bring this dangerous development to the attention of all of you my colleagues, the entire country and the international community so that you can be aware of the level of impunity in our country and the danger it constitutes to our democracy”.

In reactions, the lawmakers said that the country’s democracy was in danger and that the emerging indices were not good for the country as its parliamentarians are being maliciously hunted for disgrace and humiliation.

The Senate president, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, Wednesday raised the alarm that the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim kpotun Idris, has plotted to implicate him in a criminal offence.

Saraki said he was reliably told by his state governor, Ahmed Abdulfatah that the IGP has ordered for the immediate transfer of criminal suspects to Abuja with the ulterior motive to implicate him and the state government.

 

       2. Dino Melaye Regains Freedom

In his ruling on Wednesday morning, the Kogi State Chief Judge, Justice Nasiru Ajana said he had considered the health situation of the third defendant, hence the need to admit him to bail with the sum of N10 million with one surety.

Senator Melaye was accused of sponsoring arms and working with suspected political thugs – Kabiru Saidu AkA Osama ahead of the 2019 general elections.
