The Senate president Bukola Saraki for the second time has written to the inspector general of police, Ibrahim Idris, on his invitation to appear for an interrogation over the bank robbery that claimed the life of many resident in Offa, Kwara state.
Saraki had on Tuesday, July 24, failed to honour an invitation by the police on the ongoing investigation in the robbery case.
However, explaining why his principal did not honour the police invitation, the spokesperson for the Senate president, Yusuph Olaniyonu, said Saraki had responded to the police in writing.
Olaniyonu said Saraki in the letter which was dispatched to the police on Tuesday, July 24, had answered all the questions raised by the police in his letter to the police boss.
He also added that the letter was duly acknowledged by the force headquarters and that there was no need for the Senate president to go to the police personally.
Olaniyonu said: "He has written a letter to them and the letter has taken care of the purpose of the invitation. He sent the letter to them yesterday (Tuesday). The letter addressed the issues raised in the invitation letter."
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that the Nigeria police had written to the Senate president over the Offa robbery incident.
The police in its letter asked Saraki to report at the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) of the Force on Tuesday, July 24.
However, there was controversy on Tuesday, July 24, morning when police officers blocked the motorcade of the Senate president. He was however not inside his vehicle and later appeared at the National Assembly complex to preside over the day's plenary.
