President Muhammadu Buhari held a closed-door meeting with some Senators at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The Senators are members of the nine-member committee set up to meet President Buhari on issues surrounding the feud between Senate President Bukola Saraki and the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.

The Senate President last week raised an alarm over an alleged plot by the IGP to implicate him and Kwara state Governor, Abdulfatai Ahmed.

Saraki claimed that Governor Ahmed informed him that a group of suspects who had been in police cells for several weeks for cultism and whose investigation had been concluded with the prosecution about to commence under the state law were ordered to be transferred to Abuja.

Saraki alleged that this is a plot to implicate him and the Kwara State governor.

The Senate’s President’s allegations come days after the IGP failed for the third time to appear before the Senate after he was summoned.

The Senate committee is chaired by Saraki with members who include Senate Leader Ahmed Lawan; Chief Whip Olusola Adeyeye; Minority Leader Godswill Akpabio; Danjuma Goje; Sam Anyanwu; Aliyu Wammako; Fatima Raji-Rasaki; and Oluremi Tinubu.
