Offa bank robbery suspects

Social Media commentator Reno Omokri has mocked the recent indictment of Senate President Bukola Saraki by suspects of the deadly Offa bank robbery.

The police on Wednesday claim that the arrested suspects have confessed to being political thugs for the Senate President and that they accompanied Senator Saraki to the palace of the traditional ruler of Offa, Olofa of Offa on a condolence visit after the robbery.

Reacting in a post on his Twitter page, Omokri wrote: “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?

“With what is happening to @BukolaSaraki today, does anyone still doubt who was behind the attempted @NGRSenate’s mace theft? By the way, when was the last time you heard anything about mace theft suspects? It seems they have been told ‘well done thou good and faithful servant’!

“The Police say @BukolaSaraki supplied the weapons the #OffaBankRobbery suspects used in their robbery, however, in the video they themselves circulated, you can hear the suspects say it was a dismissed police officer, Adikwu, who supplied them with weapons. Why the contradiction?”
