There is a Plan to Arrest And Detain Senate President Bukola Saraki and Ike Ekweremadu – PDP
The Peoples Democratic Party has revealed that there is a plot by the All Progressives Congress to use security agencies and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to invite, arrest and detain the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.
In a statement released by the spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party accused a certain “cabal within the Presidency” of plotting to use compromised security agencies and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to execute the plot.
Ologbondiyan said, “The PDP notes that the new plot to cage Saraki and Ekweremadu in a devilish rehash of the Tuesday, July 24, 2018 hostage-taking and invasion of their official residences by security agencies are coming after the August 7, 2018, failed attempt to use security forces to take control of the leadership of the Senate.
“Apart from the plot to arrest and detain Saraki and Ekweremadu, the PDP has also been made aware of plans to use the EFCC and security forces to clamp down on their family members, including their wives and siblings as well as close associates, all in the effort to weaken their resolve.
“Moreover, investigations by the PDP further confirm that the insistence of the APC-led Federal Government on the emergency reconvening of the National Assembly, ostensibly to consider INEC’s budget for the 2019 elections, is part of APC’s thicker plot to execute their premeditated ‘coup’ against the leadership of the Senate.”
