The Nigerian Police Force has asked Senate President, Bukola Saraki to respond to allegations linking him to the Offa bank robbery, within forty-eight hours rather than appearing in person.
Senate President Bukola Saraki would no longer need to appear before the police for questioning.
In a post on Twitter, the Senate President said he now has a formal communication from the police, but it was not for him to appear but rather to answer questions bordering on the robbery in Offa, Kwara State, in April.
The announcement comes minutes after Vice President Yemi Osinbajo met behind closed-doors with the Inspector General of Police, the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, as well as the head of State Security Service, Lawal Daura, at the State House
The police had said on Sunday that it would be inviting Doctor Saraki as five of the robbery suspects indicted him.
