Senate President, Bukola Saraki has said that his aide, Ugochinyere Ikenga should be brought to justice is he is found guilty of allegations levelled against him by the Department of State Services (DSS).

The DSS has accused Ikenga of working with Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike to cause mass violence in Abuja.

Saraki made the comment via a statement released by his media aide, Yusuph Olaniyonu.

The statement reads:

“The attention of the Senate President, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki has been drawn to a statement issued by the Department of State Services (DSS) in which the department raised allegations against Mr Ugochinyere Ikenga, an aide to the senate president.”

“Though the DSS has not officially informed the senate president of the allegations against Ikenga, Dr. Saraki, having read the statement now circulating online will want to make it clear that he will never condone any action by any of his aides which threatens the peace of the country or is against the provisions of the law.

“Dr Saraki hereby calls on the DSS to properly investigate the allegations against Mr. Ikenga and if he is found to have acted against the law, then the law should take its natural course.”
