Operatives of the Intelligence Response Team of the Nigeria Police Force, today interrogated Senate President, Bukola Saraki in his office.
This was in line with President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive that Senate president should either be quizzed in his office or asked to give written information, as regards his interrogation on his alleged involvement in the Offa robberies last April.
The Inspector General of Police, Idris Ibrahim ordered his officials to go Saraki’s office to quiz him on the controversial robbery incident.
The Special Assistant on New Media to the Senate President, Olu Onemola, made this known via a tweet on Thursday.
The team of police officers were said to have interrogated Saraki in his National Assembly, Abuja office around 1.40 pm on Thursday.
