Police Questions Saraki In National Assembly Over Offa Robbery


Senate president, Bukola Saraki, was interrogated by a team of police at about 1.40 p.m on Thursday, July 26 over an ongoing investigation of the Offa robbery that happened on ThursdayApril 5, 2018.

According to a tweet by Onu Onemola, Special Assistant on New Media, Saraki used the opportunity to reiterate his innocence over the criminal allegations.

Meanwhile, police had earlier summoned him to appear on Tuesday morning at 8.00a.m.

But security operatives later blockaded Saraki’s convoy on Tuesday morning as well as the home of Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.

There are claims that the blockade was an attempt to destruct the mass APC defection by APC lawmakers and to also allow for their replacement by senators loyal to President Buhari.

Saraki eventually appeared at the Senate where he presided over the defection of 14 senators from the ruling APC.

The police later on Tuesday frowned at  Saraki’s failure to appear as directed and threatened to enforce his appearance.
