Police lay siege to Saraki, Ekweremadu’s residences

Policemen have laid siege to the Abuja residence of Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
He is said to have been prevented from moving out of his residence.
Saraki’s media aide, Bamikole Omisore, confirmed the development in a tweet.
He said he was on his way to the police headquarters to honour the invitation by the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, over the April 5 Offa robbery case when he was blocked.
The tweet reads: “The @PoliceNG have blocked the Senate President @BukolaSaraki’s convoy at Lake Chad Junction on his way to report to the police headquarters upon the last night invitation by the police received at 8 p.m.”
Yesterday, Ibrahim Idris wrote a letter to Saraki, inviting him for further interrogation on the Offa robbery case which the police said, suspects had linked him to.
Saraki had, in a swift reaction, dismissed the invitation as political, saying it was a ploy to abort some legislators from defecting from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
In the same vein, Police have also laid siege to the residence of the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
The move, it was gathered, was to prevent him from presiding over the defection of some legislators.
