No arrest warrant for Saraki- Police

Saraki

In regards to the controversy generated by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) order for the arrest of Senate President Bukola Saraki, the police yesterday said they haven’t received any order to that effect.
“I am yet to see one”, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Solomon Arase, said.
The CCT, headed by Justice Danladi Umar, had, in a ruling on Friday, ordered the IGP and other security agencies to arrest Saraki and produce him before Monday to face a 13-count charge bordering on corruption and false declaration of assets. The order and subsequent bench warrant followed Saraki’s failure to appear before the tribunal for arraignment.

“The police are yet to receive the Code of Conduct Tribunal bench warrant”, ordering the Senate President’s arrest, a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), ACP Adebisi Kolawole, also said, yesterday.
