FG Perfects Plans To Nail Saraki; See The 3- Prong Strategy

These may not be the best of times for the
Senate President, Bukola Saraki, as
investigations by the Saturday Telegraph
revealed that the Federal Government (FG) has
concluded plans on a three-prong strategy to
tame what is perceived as his growing political
influence.

This is coming as the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP) confirmed that the FG and the ruling All
Progressives Congress (APC) are shopping court
orders to remove Saraki and his deputy, Ike
Ekweremadu.

Checks by our correspondents showed that the
Presidency has prepared a “perfect and solid
arrangement” to nail Saraki who last week
defected from the APC to the PDP with all
elected officials and political appointees in
Kwara State, making him the most prominent
politician in the opposition.

The plans, according to credible security
sources, will begin to manifest from next week,
as sources familiar with the development
confided in our reporters that a move that
would shake the man in the eye of the storm
had been perfected.

What is considered the most potent of the
strategies is a “solid link” that had just been
found allegedly between the Senate President
and the Offa robbery suspects where during a
daring operation, armed robbers killed 30
people, including nine policemen on April 5,
2018.

To achieve this, it was learnt that a Deputy
Inspector General of Police (DIG) was detailed
to take over the aspect of the investigation,
which allegedly linked Saraki with some of the
suspects.

The DIG was said to have unraveled the ‘fresh
evidence’ that would make inviting Saraki more
compelling, unlike previous reports that were
considered not strong enough for his arrest and
possible detention.

The current link between Saraki and the
robbery suspects, which the prosecutors find not
strong enough, is the confession of one of the
suspects, Ayodele Akinnibosun, who claimed to
be a political thug for Saraki and the state
governor, Abdulfattah Ahmed.

He had said: “I am the chairman of Liberation
Youths movement Kwara South. I work for
Senate president and Governor Ahmed as
political mobilising youth and we have been
working for long time since he was governor of
Kwara.

We mobilise and do political arrangement for
him in Kwara South. Where we can’t win, we
make arrangement there; we scatter elections if
we don’t win.”

Although the Senate President has consistently
denied any involvement in the crime, the police
was said to have worked on the “fresh and
more convincing evidence” after the said DIG
relocated to Ilorin last week to assemble the
fresh evidence, preparatory to being used
against Saraki.

The second of the threeprong strategy is to
unleash a team of the Economic and Financial
Crimes Commission (EFCC) on the state, to begin
another round of examination of the state’s
financial records from 2003 to date.

This, an insider confirmed, is already
happening, noting that some operatives of the
anti-graft agencies are already on ground in
the state.

This effort is expected to yield enough material
to secure convictions against Saraki and make
Ahmed an accomplice so as to keep both of
them imbalanced until after the election.

“Are you sure the EFCC guys are not already on
ground in that state? We expect them to be
there fully by now”, one of the sources said.

But efforts to get the EFCC and the police to
either confirm or deny the plans were not
successful, as the telephone lines of the EFCC’s
Head of Media and Publicity, Mr. Wilson
Uwujaren, and that the Force Public Relations
Officer, Jimoh Moshood, were switched-off at
the time of filing this report.

The third option according to the highly placed
sources, is to create more confusion in the
National Assembly where there are ongoing
moves already to impeach Saraki and
Ekeremandu.

An opposition lawmaker told Saturday
Telegraph that the anti- Saraki senators would
be more empowered to create a state of
instability in the National Assembly worse than
what Saraki has experienced so far.

This was subtly confirmed by Senator Abdullahi
Adamu, who said Saraki would face drastic
consequences.
