Offa Robbery: Police Quiz Senate President
Detectives interrogated yesterday Senate President Bukola Saraki over the Offa, Kwara State, robbery.
Operatives of the Intelligence Response Team of the Police met Saraki in his National Assembly, Abuja, office in the afternoon.
Saraki was grilled for close to two hours, sources said he responded to questions raised by the police investigation team,The Nation reports.
Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris on Monday wrote to request Saraki’s appearance on Tuesday to clear himself of alleged relationship with five principal suspects in the Offa bank robbery investigation.
No fewer than 33 people, including policemen were killed in the robbery.
Saraki failed to honour the invitation but wrote to ask the IGP to detail his men to come to his office to interrogate him as directed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Apparently in compliance with President Buhari’s directive that Saraki should either be quizzed in his office or asked to give written information, the IGP drafted his officials to Saraki’s office to quiz him on the incident.
