The Force Headquarters on Friday conveyed the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase’s readiness to enforce the bench warrant issued for the arrest of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, without delay.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Mrs. Olabisi Kolawole, stated the police stance on the matter in a telephone interview with our correspondent on Friday.
“We are going to promptly arrest the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki and produce him before the Code of Conduct Tribunal on Monday.
“Since it is a bench warrant issued by a competent court, the order will be carried out without delay. We don’t want to pre-empt anything”, Kolawole stated.
Justice Danladi Umar of the Code of Conduct Tribunal had on Friday, issued a bench warrant for Saraki’s arrest, following his refusal to appear in court in his ongoing trial for alleged false asset declaration.[The Nation]
