Toyin Saraki, wife of the Senate President Bukola Saraki, has reacted to a statement by the Nigeria Police force denying ever deploying officers to lay siege on the residence of her husband. According to the police, the security operatives seen in the pictures circulating in the media were those in the convoy of the Senate President and others attached to him.
However in reaction Mrs. Toyin Saraki labeled the statement from the police as false. Via Twitter, she wrote:
”I am absolutely flabbergasted by @PoliceNG Jimoh Moshood on TV attempting to claim that these white vehicles that blockaded the road outside our Abuja residence could possibly be “protection provided to the Wife of the Senate President” ! Firstly I have never received any vehicle from @PoliceNG
Secondly, I believe these vehicles bear a striking resemblance to cars donated by my dear brother @AlikoDangote.
I hope DSP Jimoh Moshood can leave me out of this unseemly contretemps. Thank you!
It was bad enough that I was forced to endure a mass invasion of my privacy, with the mis-identification of a guest at a private family occasion, falsely, as one of the @PoliceNG Offa Bank Robbery suspects. The Police did nothing to correct this widely circulated falsehood’.
