Court prevents police from grilling Saraki over Offa bloodbath

The motion was seeking the enforcement of the fundamental human rights of Saraki.

Police can no longer question Senate President Bukola Saraki over the Offa Bank robbery, pending the determination of a fundamental rights suit brought against the FG, the FCT High Court ruled on Wednesday.

Some of the suspects who were arrested in connection with the bloodbath months ago were alleged to have ties with Saraki. The police had severally asked Saraki to report to them for interrogation.

Justice M. A. Nasir gave the restraining order while ruling on an exparte motion brought by 10 lawyers, led by the National Chairman of APP party, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere.

The motion was seeking the enforcement of the fundamental human rights of Saraki. The plaintiffs asked the court to restrain the Police from interrogating, harassing, inviting, arresting, detaining or taking any action that would infringed on the fundamental rights of the Senate president pending the hearing and determination of the substantive Matter.
