‘It was bad enough that I was forced to endure a mass invasion of my privacy’ – Bukola Saraki’s wife calls out the Nigerian Police

 

 

 

Toyin Saraki, wife of the Senate President Bukola Saraki has finally reacted to the series of battles her family, especially her husband has been facing with the Nigerian police.

 

Toyin reacted to a statement by DSP Jimoh Moshood on TV who insinuated that the vehicles that blocked the road outside the Saraki’s Abuja residence could possibly be “protection provided to the Wife of the Senate President”.

 

In a series of tweets, she said, ‘It was bad enough that I was forced to endure a mass invasion of my privacy, with the mis-identification of a guest at a private family occasion, falsely, as one of the Police Offa Bank Robbery suspects. The Police did nothing to correct this widely circulated falsehood’.

Dear @channelstv @sunrisedailynow I am absolutely flabbergasted by @PoliceNG Jimoh Moshood on TV attempting to claim that these white vehicles that blockaded the road outside our Abuja residence could possibly be “protection provided to the Wife of the Senate President” !

Firstly I have never received any vehicle from @PoliceNG
Secondly, I believe these vehicles bear a striking resemblance to cars donated by my dear brother @AlikoDangote.
I hope DSP Jimoh Moshood can leave me out of this unseemly contretemps. Thank you!

It was bad enough that I was forced to endure a mass invasion of my privacy, with the mis-identification of a guest at a private family occasion, falsely, as one of the @PoliceNG Offa Bank Robbery suspects. The Police did nothing to correct this widely circulated falsehood.

While the challenges of criminal justice administration in Nigeria are crying out for urgent reform, it would speak better of us as a nation, to conduct rights respecting processes, eschewing malicious sensationalism to ensure that truth and justice prevail, on and always.
