Dogara Alerts IGP of Plot By Bauchi Government to Implicate Him in Criminal Conspiracy


Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has alerted the Inspector General of Police of a plot by the Bauchi state government to implicate him in a “criminal conspiracy.”

In a statement issued by the Dogara’s media aide, Turaki Hassan on Thursday, said the IG has been formally written about the plot in a letter dated March 21, 2018 and the Director General of the Department of State Service (DSS) copied.

The statement said;

“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, PDP, 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 crime and thereafter, abandon them at the scene so as to implicate me.

“I am, by this letter, putting the police and other security agencies on notice so as to be on the watch out for these criminal elements intended to be deployed by Bauchi State government.”
