Information reaching our news desk has it that a gang of suspected killers, who were arrested and paraded by the Kwara State Police Command in Ilorin last week, have implicated Senator Bukola Saraki and Governor Fatahi Ahmed in confessional statements they made to the Nigerian Police Kwara State command while in detention.
According to our source, the assassins confessed to the killing of several Kwara indigenes that are resident both in Nigeria and in the diaspora with more names in their target list to eliminate before the election including the two Mustapha’s, Kayode Oyin, Yinka Aluko, Baba Rex, and One Mr. Ogunlowo. They suspects were transferred to Abuja for further investigation as the pressure from different quarters concerning the case has increased within the last 48 hours.
In their statements, the men of the underworld SecretReporters learnt confessed to be on the pay role of Kwara State Government and Mandate Office of Senator Bukola Saraki. The suspects also confessed that apart from monthly stipends being paid to them by the Office of the Senate President and the State Government, they also received gifts like the Toyota Corolla shared to them by Saraki few months ago. The gift, they said according to Senator Saraki was to motivate them in preparation for the 2019 Elections.
It is pertinent to note that the gang leader of the lethal killer squad who doubles as the Son of the notorious Magaji Nda, Alhaji Salihu Woru, a self-appointed spokesperson of the Ilorin Emirate Magajis and currently on suspension was placed on level 16 pay, while others are between level 10 and 16.
A source in the Police on solid grounds confided in this online news medium that the statement of account linked to the hired guns retrieved from the bank confirmed monthly alerts from Saraki and Kwara State Government with most of the assassins account balance running in millions.
SecretReporters also learnt that after the confessional statements made by the assassins, Senator Bukola Saraki and Governor Fatahi Ahmed tried to mount pressure on the Kwara State Commissioner of Police using their ally, the Director of Prosecution, Mr. Mumini, who is generally known within Kwara state to be a notorious corrupt Officer in the Ministry of Justice. Money inducement in millions to sweep the case under the carpet was also extended to the State CP, an offer which he rejected, thus prompting the urgent transfer of the assassins to Abuja in the early hours of the following day.
Due to the nature and gravity of the crime and accusations, the Police may invite Senator Saraki and Governor Ahmed sooner than later, although the duo has since been looking for an avenue to blackmail the Inspector General of Police thus terming the police investigation a witch-hunt.
