Police tell Saraki - We already have enough evidence to prosecute you on Offa robbery


The police have said the death in custody of a leader of the Offa bank robbery gang, Michael Adikwu, will not affect the outcome of the case.

They also said that Adikwu, 30, was not murdered, “but slumped and died in detention.

The force emphasized that the evidence of the other gang leaders were enough to prosecute Senate President Bukola Saraki, and stated Adikwu was not even one of those who is testifying against Saraki.

The police had arraigned Adikwu,30 and four others at a Kwara State High Court for involvement in the April 2018 bank robberies during which over 31 persons, including nine policemen, were killed.

The police spokesman, Moshood Jimoh, in a statement in Abuja on Thursday, said,

“It is important for the public to know that Adikwu was not among the five gang leaders that indicted and implicated the Senate President; therefore, his death cannot vindicate Senator Bukola Saraki. There is a post-mortem examination result in respect of the death of Adikwu.

“Evidence from the five suspects now in court is enough to prosecute the Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki,” he added.

The police insisted that investigation had revealed that the men who carried out the robberies in Offa in April 2018, were Saraki’s political thugs, adding that the accused admitted that they attended the Senate President daughter’s wedding in Abuja.
