Unic Press UK: It appears that the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) has reversed its decision to invite the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to respond to confessional statements made by criminal suspects in Police custody.
In another tweet today, Saraki, who had earlier confirmed on Twitter that he will honour the invitation, said: “Following my earlier tweet, I have received the letter from @PoliceNG. They are no longer asking me to appear at any station, but to respond in writing to the allegations within 48 hours — which I plan to do.”

The Police is demanding a response from Saraki following the confessional statements made by criminal suspects, who allegedly robbed several financial houses in Offa, Kwara State, on April 2018.
In a press briefing Sunday, the NPF Public Relations Officer, ACP Jimoh Moshood, said:
“… the Senate President, Sen.
