In a recent interview with suspected Offa robbery gang leader, journalists released an audio clip, which has the mentioning of Nigeria Senate President and the governor of Kwara state in their statement. This is coming in the wake of the event when the Nigeria Police Force invited the Senate President, Bukola Saraki for questioning. Pundits have come out to condemn the Inspector General of Police, terming this new indictment on Saraki has witch-hunt or kicking back after the IG has failed to honour the Senate summon.
