Offa robbery: Further investigation report troubles Reno Omokri
Following reports of further Police investigation into the indictment of Senate President Bukola Saraki in the Offa banks robbery in Kwara State, Reno Omokri has taken to Twitter to express certain concerns.
TheNewsGuru reports Saraki was further indicted from confessions of 5 gang leaders arrested for active participation in the banks robbery and gruesome killing of more than 33 innocent persons including pregnant women and 9 police officers on 5th April, 2018.
In an investigation report published by the Nigerian Police on Wednesday, the Police claimed “that three (3) gang leaders who participated actively in the Offa Bank Robbery (i) Ayoade Akinnibosun aka AY (ii) Ibukunle Ogunleye aka Arrow and (iii) Adeola Abraham followed the Senate President, Sen. Bukola Saraki to Oloffa’s Palace when the Senate President paid a condolence visit to Offa after the Bank Robbery”.
“New revelations from further investigation into the matter show that all the five (5) gang leaders namely; Ayoade Akinnibosun, Ibukunle Ogunleye, Adeola Abraham, Salawudeen Azeez, Niyi Ogundiran have direct connection to the Senate President, Sen. Bukola Saraki as new pictures of one of the five (5) gang leaders when paraded by the Police early in the week was in ‘Aso Ebi’ (trouser) used during the Senate President daughter’s wedding. The Five (5) gang leaders further admitted that they attended the Senate President daughter’s wedding held recently,” the statement read.
In his reaction on Twitter, Omokri was of the opinion that the presence of the robbers in the Senate President’s entourage was not enough evidence to indict him.
“The police say that a photo of the Offa Robbers attending @BukolaSaraki’s wedding is proof of his culpability. Can someone remind them that VP @ProfOsinbajo’s daughter married the son of Bola Shagaya who is on trial for corruption. Is that also proof of Osinbajo’s guilt? Jokers!
“If some of those who attended the wedding between Zahra Buhari and Ahmed Indimi are later found to be criminals, should we also accept that as proof of Buhari’s guilt? Maina wore pro-Buhari items. Is that proof of Buhari’s guilt too? Why must the police ridicule itself like this?
“The police say the attendance of Offa robbery suspects at @BukolaSaraki’s daughter’s wedding is proof of his culpability. What desperation! Buhari is an immediate past Grand Patron of Miyetti Allah, the herdsmen association. Is that now proof that he’s guilty of herdsmen killing?” he tweeted.
