Police spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood, says siege at Saraki’s residence might have been staged




Spokesperson of the Nigeria police force, Jimoh Moshood, was a guest in Channels TV this morning where he insinuted that the siege at the residence of Senate President Bukola Saraki was “stage-managed for public sentiments” yesterday Tuesday July 24th.

Accoridng to Jimoh, the force did not give any directive for a seige to be laid on Saraki’s home

“We have the responsibility to protect him so we can’t block him. If we were expecting him at 8am, why should we block him? What happened yesterday was not a blockade by the security personnel from the force. The personnel seen in the footage are those attached (to) the convoy of the senate president and to his residence. Those you see are those attached to him.

“The IGP has directed an investigation into the incident. The ADC has been invited, he should be with the principal all the time. So if he is not aware of the whereabouts, we want to know why. Why should we go and block an empty house?

“The video footage was circulated in the media to embarrass us. These are leaders of the legislature who we have the responsibility to protect. So we should allow the investigation to be completed before we give you the outcome of investigation.”
