There was anxiety yesterday following the relocation of the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, from his personal residence in Maitama District in Abuja.
He was said to have moved to the official Guest House of the Office of the President of the Senate for “security reasons.”
It was learnt that the invasion of the Guest House by the.....
police to arrest Saraki might be considered an assault on the Senate.
But the police were still awaiting the warrant of arrest from the Code of Conduct Tribunal on yesterday.
To stave off pressure, the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, Justice Danladi Umar, has allegedly switched off all his mobile lines.
A source said: “The President of the Senate has relocated from his personal house in Abuja. Saraki is now staying in the official Guest House of the President of the Senate which is like a sacred place like the hallowed chamber of the Senate.
“If the police and security agencies invade or storm the place, it will amount to a slap on the upper chamber. This can make the Senate to join issues with the Executive despite the fact that there is no immunity for any National Assembly leaders.
“He has also been consulting with his strategists on how to vacate the Bench warrant against him by the Code of Conduct Tribunal.”
Drop a comment....thanks!
