Offa Robbery Allegations: Saraki Send Response To Police

2 min read

The ongoing brouhaha over Offa Robbery allegations between the Senate President Bukola Saraki and the Police seems to be getting clearer as Saraki has forwarded his response to inquiries made by the Nigeria Police over his involvement in the April 5 bank robbery in Offa, Kwara State.

The former Kwara State Governor has been allegedly implicated by some of the robbers who claim to be thugs working for him.

Sequel to the confession, Saraki had been summoned to appear before the Police for preliminary explanations and his involvement in the said acts.

But the intervention of the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo made the IG of Police, Ibrahim Idris, have a change of heart and asked the Kwara-born politician to only send a written reply over the incident.

The back and forth between the Police and the Senate President has since generated widespread reactions, with many expressing their disbelief in the Senate President’s ability to order such attacks.

And according to the agreement, Saraki has now sent his response to the allegations leveled against him by the armed robbers and the Police.

Saraki in a Tweet on Thursday said that he has complied with the Police demand for him to put his response to the allegation in writing.

The Tweet read: “Bukola Saraki @bukolasaraki-12m; In line with their request, earlier today, the Police received my response to their letter on the investigation into the Offa robbery case.”

Efforts to obtain a copy of the response of the Senate President was unsuccessful.
