The Nigerian Police has told the lawmaker representing Gombe-central senatorial district, Senator Danjuma Goje, to honour its invitation or risk arrest.
The police spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood, issued the warning on Thursday, April 27, during a breakfast television show titled, ‘Sunrise Daily’ on Channels TV. He said: “On the day the house was searched, a call was putthrough to him (Goje) by Ango Usman, who is the housekeeper, confirming to him the presence of the police team. He (Goje) said he was coming on that day but he switched off his phone afterwards.
“The following day, which was a Friday, one Nura got in touch with the police investigator and said they were coming on Friday with their lawyers to the police headquarters to meet with the investigators but they never did. Later, they called that they would come on Monday butthey never did.
“So, I am using this opportunity to equally call on him to appear before the investigation panel because the investigation is still ongoing into all the recovery that was made in his house and it is important that nobody be allowed to cast aspersion on the investigation of police to pervert the course of justice.”
Moshood noted that Goje would be arrested should he continue to shun police invitation on the grounds that nobody is above arrest. “We will definitely do so and it is important for him to know that on time and appear before the police investigation team handling the matter.”
Police spokesperson Jimoh Moshood, who signed the statement, also said that the force did not take any 2017 budget proposal documents as claimed by the senator.
