Bukola Saraki, the Senate president, has raised the alarm over alleged plots by his opponents to create public disorder by organizing demonstrations and force him out of office.
The office of the Senate president urged the inspector general of police and his officers to prevent any incident that can wreak havoc on people, public institutions or facilities.
Saraki warned the public on Monday, April 25, through his special adviser on media and communication, Yusuf Olaniyonu, Leadership reported.
“The office of Senate president has alerted members of the public on the plan by some politicians to create public disorder tomorrow through a sponsored demonstration that will seek to ground human and vehicular activities on some major streets of Abuja, particularly, those leading to the National Assembly Complex.
“We have information that the sponsors have been deploying resources to ensure that a sizable crowd was mobilized to create chaos, confusion and tension around the streets of Abuja. Money and other materials are being provided for the organizers by the sponsors.
“Their aim, as we have earlier stated, is to further create an atmosphere of confusion by forcing the Senators to move against their leadership, particularly, the Senate president,” he stated.
“Our concern is to warn that those who are recruiting others to protest and their recruits should not create a situation of breakdown of law and order or create an atmosphere that will be seized by hoodlums to bring about needless crisis,” he added.
