His comment was conveyed in a statement released by his principal private secretary, Tajudeen Oloyede, on Wednesday, June 6.

Ujuayalogu'sBlog notes that the Senate president had been invited for questioning by the Nigerian Police Force, following a robbery which took place on April 5, during which 33 persons were killed.

However, the royal father asked the Police to refrain from unnecessary sensationalism in handling the investigation into the robbery incident.

He stated: “The attention of Olofa’s Palace, Offa, the traditional domain of his royal majesty, Oba Mufutau Gbadamosi, Ajagungbade I, the Olofa of Offa has been drawn to the claims made by the Police at a press conference in Abuja on 3rd of June, 2018 where some of the suspects arrested in connection with the robbery incidents which occurred in our town in April implicated Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki, the Senate president.

“While we will not want to prejudice the investigation by the Police on this case, the community will appreciate thoroughness to ensure equity and justice on the matter.

“As far as we are concerned, Dr Bukola Saraki has taken Offa as his second home and have been supportive of all our activities and development projects in the town. The Senate president always heeds to our call anytime we approach him on any issue concerning the progress and security of our ancient town.

“The Offa people are well bred citizens of Nigeria and we are appreciative of people who have extended hands of fellowship to us. Dr Saraki is one such person; and thus, we hold him in high esteem.

“When the Offa robbery incident happened, the Senate president was the first top public official to pay a visit to our town; and right , in the palace, in the glare of the high chiefs and other well-meaning personalities, the Senate president, Dr Abubakar Saraki put a call to the inspector-general of Police, Mr Ibrahim Kpotun Idris, requesting him to make necessary security arrangement which our people have long been yearning for.

“The Senate president also donated substantial money to help some of our people who were in distress as a result of the robbery incident and he also made substantial contribution towards the building of a new Police station.

“We wish to state that the Senate president is a former governor of Kwara state and by the grace of God the number three citizen of this country; we will therefore not be a party to attempt to ridicule, embarrass, denigrate and disgrace him. We know his antecedent, family and political beliefs.

“We therefore call on the Police to be alive to their responsibility and avoid unnecessary sensationalism in the handling of the investigation into the Offa robbery incident. We will appreciate that this case is thoroughly investigated, devoid of media trial and unnecessary and undue publicity.

“Our interest remains in the law taking its course against those who unleashed mayhem and violence against our people, in order to prevent a recurrence of such crime in our society."
