It appears the presidency is wading into the allegation against the Senate President by the police. Earlier today, the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo met, on Monday, with the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami and the Director-General of the Department of State Security, Lawal Daura, for over an hour.
The meeting was held behind closed-doors at the Vice President’s wing of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, in Abuja.
The meeting, according to a Presidency source, was said to have been convened over the summon of Senate President Bukola Saraki by the police over his alleged relationship with suspects arrested following the April 5 bank robbery in Offa, Kwara State.
Cornered by State House Correspondents to brief on what the agenda of the meeting was about, IGP Idris said that all enquires should be directed to the ADC to Osinbajo.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari had earlier, met with the service chiefs and heads of other security agencies.
