The latest on offa robbery: The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has once again requested for the presence of Bukola Saraki at the Force Intelligence Response Team office at Guzape, Abuja, for interrogation over alleged links to the masterminds of the Offa bank robberies.
The IG, in a letter dated July 23 addressed to Saraki, asked him to report to the police on Tuesday (Today) at 8am to provide further clarification on his relationship with the five leaders of the robbery gang.
The letter explained that the suspects also mentioned other thugs in Kwara Central with guns “which Senator Bukola Saraki is sponsoring, (such) as Alhaji Alawo, Alhaji Dona, and Alhaji Jawando, among others.”
It added that Saraki in his response to the police said he had large followership by virtue of his participation in politics which made it impossible for him to know all his supporters.
After a careful perusal of Saraki’s letter, the IG said it was discovered that the Senate President’s statement required further clarification coupled with the fact that he complained about not having access to the statements made by the robbery suspects.
The letter read, “After a careful perusal of your letter to the police, it was discovered that the statement requires further clarification and coupled with the fact that you stated that the full text of the statements of the suspects was not shown to you, it is imperative you report to the police to make further statements after giving you the full text of the statements of the suspects.”
“It is in line with the above that you are requested to report to the head of the investigation team at the Intelligence Response Team at Guzape Junction, Asokoro Extension, Abuja on the 24th of July, 2018 at 8am for further investigation on the matter,” it added.
