While speaking on Tuesday during plenary on the floor of the senate, Senate President Bukola Saraki narrated his experience in the hands of security operatives, who laid siege to his house.
He said: “The road leading to my place was cordoned off and all cars coming in and out as early as 6:30 were being stopped and you have to come down.
“My convoy was stopped from moving…
“And as you are all aware, very late yesterday, at about 8p.m., I received a letter asking me to report to the police on a case of this Offa robbery which had been concluded before now.
“That’s the situation why the DSP could not come here and I was already going somewhere else. If not, this plenary would not have been able to hold today. So I had to come here.”
Saraki condemned the siege saying it was God that made him escape it. He said; “But as you all rightly said, if one of our colleagues cannot come out for no fault of his, I don’t see how we can continue to sit and ignore the fact that a presiding officer cannot be here.
