The President of the Senate Dr. Bukola Saraki took to his social media pages to say that he has written his defence to the police who linked with the Offa Massacre. His announcement read,

“In line with their request, earlier today, the Police received my response to their letter on the investigation into the Offa robbery case”

Bukola Saraki added that Nigerians should disregard the Police claims about his involvement or connection to the incident saying that it was a ploy to implicate him by all means.

You may recall that most of those involved in the Offa robbery have been arrested and some of them have been alleged to have confessed to the Police that they were associates of the Senate President. The Police subsequently issued a statement inviting the Senate President to explain his links with the bandits. It was later gathered that the Senate President was asked to send in a written defence.

Having sent in a written defence, it has also been said that the Police is insisting that Bukola Saraki should appear in person to defend these allegations.

Meanwhile, in another development, the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris has said that the Senate and its President have hatred and contempt for him. The statement was contained in his affidavit asking the court to quash what he called “Legislative Judgement” a Resolution of the Senate on May 9, 2018 where the Senate declared him “an enemy of democracy and unfit to hold a public office.”
