According to Media reports, Saraki has accused the Inspector General of Police (Ibraham Idris) of moving some criminal suspects in Kwara State who are still under interrogation to say things targeted at implicating him.

Saraki, at the plenary on Wednesday, said he was informed by Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed that the suspects had been moved from the state to Abuja for prosecution allegedly on the orders of the IG.

He said the IGP's plan is to put the suspects under duress to change the statements they already made in Ilorin and made to implicate him and the kwara state government.

"I want to bring this unsafe development to the attention of all of you my colleagues, the entire country and the worldwide community so that you can be aware of the level of impunity in our country and the danger it constitute to our democracy", the President of the Senate said.

"The information that he has is for them to try to see how they will alter the statement that they already made in Ilorin and try to implicate the State Government and particularly myself".

On some of the cases transferred to Abuja, Moshood said: "It is also imperative to let the public know that previous year, suspects arrested over the mayhem and killings of innocent people in Ile-Ife, Osun State and those arrested in Southern Kaduna crisis in Kaduna State and suspects arrested in connection with Zaki-biam killings in Benue State were all transferred to the Force Headquarters, Abuja for further investigation before they were arraigned in court of competent jurisdiction".

Saraki described the news as an act of desperation and intimidation capable of undermining the Nigerian democracy.

All actions to undermine our democracy are a recipe for anarchy because we are doing our work tasking officials to obey the law, due process and subject themselves to constitutional authority.

After making the statement, Mr Saraki vacated the seat to enable Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu to preside on the debates.
