Senate President Bukola Saraki has responded to allegations levelled against him by suspects arrested in connection with the deadly Offa bank robbery.
In April this year, Four banks were hit by the robbers and 33 persons were killed in the process.
The Senate President said he sent his written response to the police on Thursday, four days after the police invited him to react to questions based on claims by the suspects.
“In line with their request, earlier today, the Police received my response to their letter on the investigation into the Offa robbery case,” Saraki said.
According to the police, five gang leaders claimed that they were political thugs of the Senate President and the Governor of Kwara State, Abdulfatah Ahmed.
The Senate President and the Governor separately denied having any links with criminals shortly after the news broke.
Amid the controversy that surrounded the decision to invite the Senate President, the police withdrew the invite on Monday and asked him to, instead, respond to the allegations in writing.
