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 statements.

Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, addressing journalists, in Abuja, on Wednesday, said the two suspects confessed to being political thugs for the Senate President and that they accompanied Senator Saraki to the palace of the traditional ruler of Offa, Olofa 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 added that Saraki was further indicted as the five gang leaders paraded on Sunday celebrated with Senator Saraki during his daughter’s wedding and 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.

The Senate President, however, denied the allegations. He said on Sunday that he has no link with criminals. He also described the allegations as ‘baseless’ and “another ploy by the Police to implicate him by all means.” (Channels TV)
