Senate President Bukola Saraki has replied the police over Monday’s controversial invitation that he reports at its Intelligence Response Team at Guzape, Abuja in relation to the armed robbery in Offa, Kwara State in April.
Saraki, in a letter Wednesday, informed the police that he could not appear before them on Tuesday due to the police siege at his residence and his engagement at the Senate.
The Senate president said he would be available to respond to the police inquiries on the matter, although it was not clear if he would personally go to their office for the interrogation.
This was confirmed by the Special Adviser to the Senate President on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, who said they were still waiting for the police response to their letter before taking the next line of action.
Saraki’s letter comes as the Inspector-general of Police Ibrahim Idris said they would have to force the senate president to respond to their invitation following the siege on his home Tuesday.
