Real reasons the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, cleared the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Kwara State Governor, Abdulfata Ahmed, and his Chief of Staff, Yusuf Abdulwahab, of any complicity in the April 5, 2018, robbery in Offa, which claimed no fewer than 31 lives, were hinged on lack of concrete evidence to nail the suspects, Vanguard can authoritatively reveal.
Vanguard, which sighted the case file last night, observed that in all the investigation activities, which the police high command claimed to have carried out in respect of the crime, the investigators failed to establish how and when the three top government officials aided and abetted the suspects to carry out the attack, which also drained nine banks of huge cash deposits.
Similarly, the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation, which was asked to give a legal opinion on the robbery incident and subsequently take over the prosecution of the case, is said to have been hamstrung by the clear legal position that the robbery was a state matter, having been meticulously planned and executed in Offa, Kwara State, and not the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
