Nigerian police has debunked the allegations by Nigeria’s Senate president, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, that its men supervised an attack on his family house and his supporters after the ruling All Progressive Congress rally in Kwara state on Thursday. “The Nigeria Police Force wishes to categorically state that all the allegations in the statement of the Senate President are incorrect, misleading and false,” police spokesman Jimoh Moshood said in a statement late on Friday. Moshood said the police did not receive any complaint or report of “gunshot and wounding as claimed by the Senate President”. “I believe the decision to attack people and properties in my family ancestral compound are a direct affront and attack on my person,” Saraki said. “The Inspector General of Police did not try any trick to implicate the Senate President in some criminal charges; the facts are in the public domain about the suspects of the Offa Bank Robbery now being prosecuted who implicated the Senate President in the matter,” he added.
