The senate President, Bukola Saraki, who was recently cleared of all charges of false assets declaration by the Supreme Court, was on Monday summoned by police to read and react to statement of arrested Offa robbery suspects who fingered him as their sponsor in their statement.Bukola Saraki

In response to the summon, Mr Saraki, Mr Ben Bruce, Mr Reno Omokri and others have taken to social media to weighed in on the matter and condemn what is happening to the Senate president.

Senator Ben Murray Bruce, who expressed deep worry over the Senate president’s travail, noted that any use of force on the senate president is an act of desperation, urging Nigerians to stand with Saraki and kick against dictatorship.

“The sieges and any use of force on @BukolaSaraki, the legitimate Senate President or Ike Ekweradu, his Deputy are an act of desperation. #IStandWithSaraki and I urge you to do the same. If we allow what is currently being done to them to stand, we are in full blown dictatorship,” the lawmaker said.

Mr Omokri added that the senate president is only a victim of a tyrannical government, who’s afraid of its own shadow, noting that the number 3 citizen of the nation shouldn’t be treated like a common criminal.

“What is happening to @bukolasaraki is an act of tyranny by a leadership afraid of its own shadows. You can’t lay siege on the nation’s number 3 citizen as if he is a common criminal just to frustrate the suspected defection of people whose defection from PDP you celebrated,” Omokri said.

However, Saraki at the other end also took to the social media to say that the police invitation was plotted by the IG of police to stop the 37 APC members who dumped the party earlier today.

”I have been reliably informed that the police invitation was planned by the IG as a ploy to stop an alleged plan by some Senators and House of Representatives members from defecting from the All progressive Congress (APC),” Saraki said.
