The Nigerian Police has made a U-turn in its onslaught against the Senate President, Bukola Saraki in its ongoing investigation into the Offa Bank Robbery in Kwara state.
The Police had ordered the Senate President to turn himself in for questioning over his alleged ties to the incident. Police PRO, Jimoh Moshood, while parading the suspects allegedly linked to Saraki, said;
“The Five (5) gang leaders further confessed during investigation that they are political thugs under the name Youth Liberation Movement a.k.a “Good Boys” admitted and confessed to have been sponsored with firearms, money and operational vehicles by the Senate President, Sen. Bukola Saraki and the Governor of Kwara State, Alh. Abdulfatah Ahmed.
Meanwhile, the Senate President, Sen. Bukola Saraki is being invited by the Nigeria Police Force to report to the Force Intelligence Response Team office at Guzape, Abuja to answer to the allegations levelled against him.”
However, On Monday, in an unexpected turn of events, the Police force has asked the Senate President to instead respond to their invitation, narrating his own version of events via a statement.
A police source told Dailypost;
“The Senate President no longer need to appear before the investigating team. He has been asked to tell his own side of the story in writing. A detailed explanation would suffice at this time. His statement is expected to be submitted within 48 hours.”
