The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has informed the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu; and the Director-General, Department of State Services, Yusuf Bichi, of an alleged plot by the Bauchi State Government to involve him in a criminal conspiracy.
Dogara made this known in a statement released by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Turaki Hassan.
The statement read, “I write to inform the Inspector-General of Police that I am in receipt of credible intelligence about an ongoing plot by Bauchi State Government to implicate me in a criminal conspiracy.”
“The Bauchi State Government has procured hundreds of motorbikes and cars which are being branded in the Government House Bauchi with my pictures and logo of my party, the Peoples Democratic Party and my name inscribed”.
“The plan is that the Bauchi State Government will engage some criminal elements and give them the branded motorbikes and cars, which they will use to commit the crime and thereafter abandon them at the scene so as to implicate me,” he added
He further stated that his aim was to keep the police and security agencies abreast of the alleged criminal activities to be carried out by Bauchi State Government.
