Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has written to the Police to defend his alleged relationship with suspects in the April 5, 2018 armed robbery incidence in Offa, Kwara State.

The Police had last Sunday alleged that some of the suspects had in their confessional statements admitted that they were political thugs to the Senate President.

Consequently, it invited Saraki to appear and defend the allegations.

But in a tweet on Thursday, Saraki hinted that he had sent his defense to the allegations to the Police in writing.

Saraki’s tweet reads: “In line with their requests, earlier today the Police received my response to their letter on the investigation into the Offa robbery case”.

Sources close to the office of the Senate President informed that Saraki could not disclose the contents of his statement to the Police to reporters because he is a man who believes in due process of law.
