In a sudden turn of event, the Police Force Headquarters has struck out the name of Senate President, Bukola Saraki from the invitation list of those requested to appear before the IGP monitoring unit over last week’s protest in Abuja.
However, THE Force Headquarters, yesterday, retained the invitation of senators Dino Melaye and Ben Murray-Bruce to appear before the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Commissioner of Police today by 10a.m. to explain their roles in last Friday’s protest in Abuja.
In the new invitation letter, the Police excluded the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, who had been initially invited in the previous invitation letter on Friday.
Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, in a statement on the latest invitation, did not offer any explanation why the Senate President was excluded.
The police also changed the venue of interrogation. in the latest invitation the Police directed the two legislators to appear before the FCT Police boss for investigation and not the IGP Monitoring Unit as earlier stated in the press release from the Force Headquarters on October 5. The statement, however, explained that investigation was still ongoing to determine the involvement or otherwise of some other individuals, who were captured on camera to have participated in the protest.
