The suspect’s recent confession was made public by the Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Jimoh Moshood a press conference on Thursday.
The police reacting to Akinnibosun’s recent confession insisted that the Senate president is still under investigation for allegedly arming thugs who orchestrated the robbery that led to the death of 33 persons including police officers.
Mr. Moshood said the invitation of Saraki, who has been asked to respond to allegations against him in writing has not been withdrawn as reported in the media.
Akinnibosun, who claimed to be the chairman of the Liberation Youths Movement in Kwara South also revealed that he was part of the team that joined Saraki in paying a condolence visit to a traditional ruler, Olofa of Offa after the bank robbery.
“I have a friend, he is a politician too. He is close to the senate president, Senator, Bukola Saraki. His name is Samsudeen Bada. He was the one that called me though we have a political platform but I didn’t get to know he (Saraki) was there already; that he was going to pay a condolence visit to the Olofa of Offa.
“The senate president is not just a small person somebody can just say you want to go and see. If he wants to talk with us, he talks with us through his own political aides, his own people around him because he doesn’t have anything to do with us because of something like this (their arrest).”
Mr. Moshood insisted that the criminal case against Saraki will not be swept under the carpet as they have a case that can stand the test of trial.
