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.

According to Mr Saraki, the report indicated that Mr Idris was planning to move some persons already investigated in the state to Abuja where they would be made to change their earlier statements and implicate him (Saraki) in criminal acts.

“All of a sudden they are being ordered to be transferred to Abuja this morning. The information reaching him as he received from the Inspector General of Police, is that they had been directed by the IGP to bring them to Abuja.

“As we speak now, these suspects are already here in Abuja. These acts are of desperation, blackmail and intimidation.

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.

“I think it is important that I bring these dangerous developments to your attention, and the attention of the entire country.”

After making the statement, Mr Saraki vacated the seat to enable Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu to preside on the debates.
