The police denied that they took such documents during a raid on the Abuja home of Senator Danjuma Goje. The Senate said they did and that the budget could be delayed for that reason.
But, said the Senate yesterday in a statement, less than 24 hours after it demanded the immediate return of the documents, the police had complied with its directive.
Senate President Bukola Saraki’s office said the police returned all the documents, cash and laptop they took away from the house of the Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriation.
Goje had, on Wednesday, told the Senate that policemen who raided his house on April 20 took away budget documents.
