Ahead of the upcoming polls, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki has raised the alarm over a mark on his life by the Inspector General of Police (IGP).
Saraki who made this revelation during a press briefing in Abuja on Friday told the gathering that the IGP should be held responsible if anything bad happens to him or any of his family member.
He said in the run-up to the general elections, the police had continued to show undisguised hostility towards him and his supporters in Kwara State.
According to him, the security agencies in Kwara have allegedly been giving cover to some persons who are unleashing violence on his supporters.
He further explained that “this latest round of violence is part of efforts to jeopardise and undermine my personal security and that of my immediate and larger family.”
Saraki who also doubles as the Director General of the PDP presidential campaign said this is because opponents were surprised at the level of support he still commands across the state despite his travails.
