President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, is now presiding over Tuesday’s plenary at the senate while a combined team of armed policemen and operatives of the Department of State Security lay siege at his home.
Sources say Saraki had been on the National Assembly Complex premises long before the plenary began.
The senate president in a statement yesterday alleged that his invitation by the Inspector-general of Police over the Offa bank robbery was politically motivated.
This also comes amid speculation that senators of the All Progressives Congress had planned to unseat Saraki during today’s plenary.
