The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Monday afternoon held a crucial meeting with top officials of the Buhari administration.
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.
Although details of the meeting are yet to be made public, a reliable source in the vice president’s office told PREMIUM TIMES the primary agenda for the meeting is Senate President Bukola Saraki.
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 Mr Saraki on Sunday after he was allegedly named by five robbery suspects as their sponsor.
Sources in the presidency had earlier told PREMIUM TIMES Mr Idris met with President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday to seek the president’s backing for possible arrest of Mr Saraki.
Mr Saraki said Monday afternoon he was eager to answer the police summon but was yet to receive any. He has denied any wrongdoing.
