Bukola Saraki Could Be Arrested Any Day, After Buhari Gave IG Police Approval


President Muhammadu Buhari has declared that he had no objections to the plan by the leadership of the Nigeria Police Force, Abuja, to arrest Senate President Bukola Saraki over a string of murder cases in Kwara State.

PT reports that the president received Inspector-General Ibrahim Idris at the State House on Friday afternoon, during which he was told of at least 20 murders allegedly linked to Mr Saraki in his home state, according to multiple sources briefed of the meeting.

Sources said the police chief arrived at the State House with a cornucopia of homicide investigation documents relating to the Senate president.

Saraki could be arrested any day from now following the president’s position that the law should run its course insofar as detectives have sufficient facts to file charges
