The Senate President who made the disclosure during the Wednesdays sitting said that intelligence reports made available to him by the Governor of Kwara State, Abdufatah Ahmed.

The Senate President alleged today that the police chief had transferred some criminal suspects undergoing interrogation in Kwara to make statements to implicate him.

The Senate is still discussing appropriate response to the information as at the time of writing this story.

The Senate President said he had the information that the plan was to implicate him in the trial.

The Senate resolved that the Senate President should lead a delegation to relay the concerns raised on the floor by Saraki.

Speaking at plenary on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, Saraki said some cultists whose investigation had been completed and awaiting prosecution have been ordered to be transferred to Abuja by IGP Idris.

In case you missed it, Kardashian West shared a picture of herself sucking on a lollipop that apparently helps suppress appetite. Another added, "MAYBE don't take appetite suppressors and eat enough to fuel your BRAIN and work hard and be successful".

On why the case was transferred to the Force Headquarters, Moshood said: "Consequent upon the public confessions of these vicious and notorious killer squad to the killings in cold blood of more than 11 innocent people in Kwara State and other States of the Federation, the statutory procedure and practice in the Force is that such a heinous crime and capital offence is transferred to the Force Headquarters for further investigation". With the information that he has, they would find how to alter their statement already made in Ilorin and try and implicate the state government and particularly myself.

Saraki later stepped down for the deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu to preside for the constitution of an ad-hoc Committee to look into the matter, the senate described as very serious and grievous.

The Senate President says the plot is part of the strategy by the Police IG to settle scores over the declaration by the Senate that he is not qualified and competent to hold any public office and an enemy of democracy.

"I think it is important (we bring) this unsafe development to your attention, country and the global authority of the impunity we are undergoing in this country and the danger to our democracy".

All actions to undermine our democracy are a recipe for anarchy because we are doing our work tasking officials to obey the law, due process and subject themselves to constitutional authority.

Godswill Akpabio, the Senate minority leader, raising a point of order, moved that the issue be debated and a resolution taken.
