Senator Shehu Sani has been invited by the Kaduna command of the Nigerian police over an ongoing homicide investigation.
The state commissioner of police, Austin Iwar has written to the senator asking him to appear on April 30 at the Command Headquarters in Kaduna for questioning.
“This is in connection with a case of criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide transferred to this office by 1 Division, Nigerian Army, Kaduna, alongside with exhibit audio CD in which your name was mentioned by the principal suspect,” Iwar said in a letter to Sani, who represent Kaduna Central at the red chamber.
“This is to enable us fairly and timely conclude investigation into the matter, Mr Iwar said,” Iwar said in the letter addressed to Sani through the Clerk of the National Assembly.
A copy of the letter was also forwarded to Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
Reacting, however, Sani claimed there was a plan to frame him up for murder by his political opponents in the state.
The lawmaker pointed accusing fingers at the Kaduna government, with which he has been having a running battle.
“They want to frame me the same way they frame Senator Dino Melaye in Kogi on allegation of arming thugs,” Sani, who claims not to have seen the letter said.
