I am still trying to wrap my head round this Saraki’s alleged involvement in the Offa robbery incident. Though it sounds comical and implausible, but l want to keep an open mind, pending the outcome of police investigation.
But the pertinent question would be – how much would he make in the operation when he has the whole NASS till at his disposal? What was the sharing formula with the hoodlums? 50/50 or 60/40? The whole thing sounds so comical to me, to say the least. Unfortunately, we are in a political period where many people, out of political prejudice or support, can’t dissect issues rationally and objectively. We just saw what happened in the “Otokoto” murder case when the Supreme court two weeks ago freed one of the convicts after over 15 years on death row.
Some of us had witnessed in this country, where a Col. Bello Fadile was tortured to implicate General Obasanjo on the phantom 1995 “coup” and how ACP Zakari Biu tortured Col. Gwadabe to the point of death to implicate himself in the same phantom coup or Col. Ajayi(rtd) who said he lost the use of his manhood till date due to the torture he received over the phantom coup, you would permit my cynicism in the current scenario. But like l said, l keep an open mind till after the end of police investigation. And of course, Saraki must make himself available by honouring the police invitation as nobody is above the law.
But how l wish there was no previous face-off between the police high command and Saraki. It would have removed any perception of witch hunt. But if there is anyone complicit within the Kwara state government, such persons should face the music. This too shall pass.
