It would be recalled the Nigeria Police Force had announced its plan to arrest the lawmaker on allegation bordering on criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide. But the Senator did not respond to the invitation of the Police on the grounds that the permission of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki was not sought and obtained.

Convinced that the Senator was not ready for the police investigation, a team of police personnel surrounded his residence with a view of affecting his arrest. Within the 8 days siege on his residence, report has it that the supply of electricity and water to the house has been disconnected by the Police, an action not justifiable in law.
