Operatives of the Department of State Services and men of the Nigeria Police have laid siege to the Abuja homes of President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki; and Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
According to The Punch, the security operatives arrived at the homes in the early hours of Tuesday.
Those at Saraki’s Maitama residence, however, left around 7:30am when the Senate President was said to have left the premises.
The operatives, however, are still at the Apo residence of Ekweremadu.
Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris had asked Senate President Bukola Saraki to report at the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) of the Force today.
The invitation, according to the IG, is in connection with the ongoing investigation of the Offa robbery in which many people died. But, to Saraki, it is all a “political game.”
According to the letter dated 23rd July, 2018 and signed by the IG, the Senate President is expected to report to the head of the IRT team by 8am.
The Police said the invitation was imperative, considering the earlier statement sent in by the Senate President.
Details of the letter of invitation, which was addressed to the Senate President, reads: “Letter of Invitation; Case of Offa robbery and gruesome murder of more than 31 persons and snatching of 21 AK47 rifles on the 5th of April, 2018.
