President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, has told the chamber that the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, allegedly plans to implicate him in the trial of some criminal suspects arrested in Kwara State.
Saraki, at the plenary on Wednesday, said he was informed by Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed that the suspects had been moved from the state to Abuja for prosecution allegedly on the orders of the IG.
The Senate President said he had the information that the plan was to implicate him in the trial.
The Deputy Majority Leader, Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah, asked that a panel be mandated to probe into the matter. He, however, prayed that Saraki steps down from presiding over the session and allow the Deputy President, Ike Ekweremadu, to take over and name members of the panel.
The prayer was unanimously granted.
