Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has once again been indicted by some arrested suspects of Offa bank robbery.
The Nigeria Police Force said the Senate President is still under investigation after the suspects indicted him in their confessional statement on Wednesday.
Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood speaking with journalists, in Abuja, said the two suspects were recently arrested in connection with the robbery and their confessional statements indict Saraki.
The Police claim that the arrested suspects have confessed to being political thugs for the Senate President and that they accompanied Senator Saraki to the palace of the traditional ruler of Offa on a condolence visit after the robbery.
This comes after Saraki was earlier indicted by five of the Offa bank robbery suspects who confessed to the crime on Sunday.
The five gang leaders claimed that they were political thugs of the Senate President and the Governor of Kwara State, Abdulfatah Ahmed.
Moshood adds that Saraki was further indicted as the five gang leaders paraded on Sunday celebrated with Senator Saraki during his daughter’s wedding as they appeared in the same outfit (Aso Ebi) with the wife of the Senate President.
The gang leader, Akinnibosun, however, insists that they are only political thugs to the Senate President and that he had no knowledge that they perpetrated the criminal act.
