Police tells Saraki not to forward a letter of explanation as evidence links Offa Robbery suspects with Saraki.

The police said on Wednesday that they have more evidence that

links five of the Offa robbery suspects with Senate President Bukola

Saraki.

According to the police, one of the new evidence included a picture

of one of the suspects at a recent wedding ceremony of Mr Saraki’s

daughter.

The police described the discovery as their latest evidence that the

top lawmaker was culpable in an armed robbery attack that led to

the death of 33 persons. However, checks by PREMIUM TIMES show

the picture has been in circulation on social media for some days.

“New revelations from further investigation into the matter show

that all the five (5) gang leaders namely; Ayoade Akinnibosun,

Ibukunle Ogunleye, Adeola Abraham, Salawudeen Azeez, Niyi

Ogundiran have direct connection to the Senate President, Sen.

Bukola Saraki as new pictures of one of the five (5) gang leaders

when paraded by the Police early in the week was in ‘Aso

Ebi’ (trouser) used during the Senate President daughter’s wedding.

“The Five (5) gang leaders further admitted that they attended the

Senate President daughter’s wedding held recently,” police

spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood, said in a statement.

Mr Saraki had been asked to submit a written statement to the

police about what he knew of the April 5 armed robbery attack in

Offa, Kwara State. The police initially summoned him for questioning

after naming him as a suspect in the robbery.

The police gave Mr Saraki 48 hours to complete a written

statement, a demand the Senate President said he would meet.

The latest allegations come a day after the National Assembly

passed 10 resolutions on the Buhari administration’s conduct. One

of the resolutions was for an immediate end to continued hostilities

between federal authorities and lawmakers.

Some lawmakers, however, disagreed with the resolutions,

describing them as self-serving and asking President Muhammadu

Buhari to remain unfazed.
