Offa Bank Robbery: Interesting Twitter Reactions To Saraki’s Role
Nigerians are not just jokers.
Many times, when stories like the comedy of Dino Melaye and Kogi governor - Yahaya Bello break, we usually pay attention to the funny reactions.
But this latest scandal has made us see that the Twitter Nigeria audience is not just about jokes, and clap backs.
Here are some reactions to the news that Senate President has been implicated by suspected armed robbers that carried out the bloody Offa bank robbery.
They claimed he has been their employer and they served as political thugs before metamorphosing into armed robbers.
Trust Nigerians, they still manage to make us laugh with some of these tweets.
Saraki was mentioned by the Offa Robbers to have armed them for political reasons... not the robbery.. but twitter town criers wont let the police try to do their job, since it is not someone they dislike...— Femi Coker (@femifactor) June 4, 2018
It's not by accident that vocal critics of govt in the Senate are facing Armed robbery charges— Ebube D Statesman (@akaebube) June 3, 2018
Dino Melaye is contending with one.
Saraki is now facing one.
Even Shehu Sani, who is as peaceful, harmless and playful as Fellaini, has been accused
Democracy is in injury time
President Buhari has never been aware of anything in this country, even when he sent IG to Benue, VP to Northeast and corruption under his govt. But was quick to be aware of Saraki link to Offa rubbers? You people should continue playing politics with yourselves.@segalink— EGBON (@Kp_Oshotee) June 3, 2018
They are saraki's thugs that have transformed into armed Robbers. Saraki is being invited to answer for arming of thugs not for robbery— Omakah (@chucksonline201) June 4, 2018
Do U know in a Robbery scene, if Ur ID card is seen there or anything that indicates Ur presence , U are a suspect n shud be called in for severe questioning n Investigation.— TravelVisa Pro?? (@Iboboii) June 4, 2018
Let alone ur name being mentioned by d Robbers.
Abeg Let Saraki jejely go and clear his Name.
If you are standing from afar like me, pls don't stay on Twitter and defend or stand with Saraki over his indictment on the #OffaBankRobbery case. This their politics has gone too far this time, so let's just watch them till the end.— Wisdom Chapp-Jumbo (@Mr_Wizzo) June 4, 2018
The law on Criminal allegation is that you are innocent until proven guilty. Let's not pre-empt the court. Saraki should defend his part.— Adewuyi yusuff (@sholaw2008) June 4, 2018
It is an investigation. You eliminate by proof. The police didn’t say Saraki sponsored the armed gangs but some of the armed robbers claimed they have worked as thug for him. If an ordinary civilian get mentioned like that I will be in detention by now.— asukutj (@asktja) June 4, 2018
