Offa robbery: Police summon Saraki for questioning after suspects implicate him and Gov. Ahmed


The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has been summoned by the Nigerian police for questioning over the April 5th Offa bank robberies in which nine policemen and 33 civilians were killed and millions of naira stolen.

The police said some of the arrested 22 robbery suspects confessed that Saraki and Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, were their sponsors.

In response, the Senate President released a statement, in which he declared he is willing to honor the invitation of the police.

He denied any links to any of the suspects, saying it is another plot to embarrass him.


Below is his statement:

The attention of the Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has been drawn to a story circulating online and apparently derived from a Press Conference addressed by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Moshood Jimoh, linking him (Saraki) to the Offa robbery.
Dr. Saraki will want the entire public to disregard this claim as a baseless allegation and another ploy by the Police to implicate him by all means. Let it be known that there is no way I could have been associated with armed robbery against my people.

“When the Offa robbery incident happened, I was the first top public official to pay a visit to the place and right there in the palace of the traditional ruler, I put a call through to this same Mr. Ibrahim Idris, the IGP, requesting him to make certain specific security arrangements as demanded by the people.

“Members of the public will remember that on May 16, 2018, I alerted the Senate about the information passed on to me by my State Governor, Dr. Abdulfatai Ahmed, over a plot by the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, to frame me up by getting some suspected cultists arrested in Ilorin to implicate me.

It is believed that the timely leakage of the plot, in that case, aborted the use of the suspected cultists to implicate me. Now, it is the Offa bank robbery suspects that are about to be used.

“This plot is concocted to embarrass me and, in the mind of the IGP, it is his own response after his refusal to honor the invitation by the National Assembly, headed me, for him to come and offer explanations on the rampant killings and violence across the country.

“Like the earlier one, this frame-up will also fail as I hereby state categorically that I have no link with any band of criminals.

“As a person who has utmost respect for the rule of law and all constitutional institutions, when the invitation from the Police is formally extended to me, I will be ready to honor it without any delay.

“It is however sad that this abuse of the criminal investigation process aimed at intimidating and over-overawing the legislature, thereby obstructing it from doing its work, is a big threat to our democracy “, the Senate President  stated.

Ethiopian activist on death row, Andargachew Tsige, 575 others released!

Popular Ethiopian activist Andargachew Tsige, who was imprisoned in 2014 and placed on death row, is officially a free man. 
Andargachew, 63, also a British citizen, was arrested in Yemen during a stopover. He was released Tuesday along with 575 other prisoners who were pardoned by the Ethiopian government under “unique circumstances,” according to the state-affiliated Fana Broadcasting Corporate (FBC). 

“I’m overwhelmed. I never expected to receive such an ecstatic reception by so many Ethiopians,” he said after he was driven to his parent's residence in Addis Ababa.


"Four years isn't that much of sacrifice, we have seen worse, I don't know what to say right now. we will talk when the time is right, not in front of those who arrested me. Now is the time to see my father," he added.

VIDEO: Nigerian Police tried to kill me twice with chemical substance and injection - Dino Melaye


Nigerian Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West, on Wednesday announced that the police attempted to kill him twice during his ordeal with them.

Melaye made the disclosure while announcing his intention to move his seat from the All Progressives Congress wing of the chambers to the Peoples Democratic Party's wing.

"The Nigerian police attempted to kill me twice, one through the application of a chemical substance and the second time through injection. They actually came with an injection but God intervened," he said.


Melaye proceeded to thank the members of the senate and well meaning Nigerians for standing by him. Afterward, he walked to the opposition wing to take a seat next to Senator Ben Bruce.

VIDEO: Dino Melaye changes seat in the senate, joins PDP




Kogi West senator, Dino Melaye, on Wednesday announced at the Senate that he longer feels comfortable sitting on the APC wing of the chamber and asked to be sited with the opposition.

        

It was Melaye’s first day at the Senate since he landed in the hospital after a failed attempt to evade being taken to Kogi State by the Nigerian police. He arrived with a walking stick and a neck support.

“Specially, I appreciate the Peoples Democratic Party for making statement during my recall exercise and asking everyone to stay aback. Politics has been shown not to be individualistic but to be about issues and purpose. To the National Chairman and executives of PDP in Kogi State, I salute you,” he said.


He then asked the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to mandate the sergeant-at-arms to create a seat for him at the opposition wing of the chamber.

“I have a special request to you Mr President. Because of the trauma I went through and I’m still going through, I want to seek your indulgence that you will call on the Sergeant-at-arms to look for a comfortable seat for me on this side of the divide (pointing to the opposition wing) because I am no longer comfortable sitting here. So, I want to ask the Senate President that you mandate the sergeant-at-arms tomorrow to look for a seat for me on this other divide of the chamber.

“Before you do that today, through the help of my walking stick I will take a comfortable seat close to Papa, General Senator David Mark pending when you get me a comfortable seat on this side.”

While he did not make it clear whether he was decamping to the opposition, many suspect he may be moving to PDP.


Melaye spent the rest of the day sitting beside David Mark as the house became rowdy.
