Troubled Nigeria: Saraki speaks on police summon, alleged link to Offa robbery suspects

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Sunday declared that he was willing to honour the invitation of the police, once he formally receives it.

Mr Saraki also denied that he has any links to any of the robbery suspects arrested for their roles in the Offa bank robbery. The robbery caused the death of about 33 people including police officers.

The Nigeria Police earlier on Sunday said some of the arrested Offa robbery suspects confessed that Mr Saraki and Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, were their sponsors.

Premium times earlier published Mr Ahmed’s denial of any links to the arrested suspects.

Sources at the Presidential Villa also told premium times Mr Idris got President Muhammadu Buhari’s nod to arrest Mr Saraki on Friday after the police chief presented evidence of the senate president’s ‘culpability’ to the president.

Presidential and police spokespersons have refused to speak on Friday’s meeting held before the Jumaat service.

In his statement Sunday night signed by his spokesperson, Yusuph Olaniyonu, Mr Saraki said being linked to the Offa robbery suspects is a plot “concocted to embarrass” him.
