Saraki's Arrest: VP Osinbajo meets with AGF, SSS-DG, IGP Idris

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Monday afternoon held a crucial meeting with top officials of the Buhari administration.

A reliable source in the vice president’s office told PT that the primary agenda for the meeting is Senate President Bukola Saraki.

Those at the meeting included the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris; the Director General of the State Security Service, Lawal Daura; and the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami.

The meeting ended around 3:30 p.m.

When journalists approached the police chief for details, he said, “Talk to the (vice president’s) ADC” who was seeing him off.

All the others rushed to their vehicles without speaking to reporters.

The police publicly summoned Saraki on Sunday after he was allegedly named by five robbery suspects as their sponsor.

Sources in the presidency had earlier told PT that IGP Idris met with President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday to seek the president’s backing for possible arrest of Saraki.
