Lai Mohammed, minister of information , has asked Senate President
Bukola Saraki to quit moving on the graves of casualties of the Offa robbery occurrence.
Mohammed said this while responding to a remark credited to Saraki's aide.
The minister had asked Saraki, who said he donated a sum of N10 million to the victims, not to play politics with the incident.
Thereafter, Yusuph Olaniyonu, media aide to the senate, said Mohammed known to be an “unrestrained and compulsive perjurer” only commented on the incident to score cheap political points.
But the minister said the claim by the senate president that he donated the sum for the care of the robbery victims is false.
“He did not! The 10 million he referred to was donated when the Offa market got burnt, and it was made in Ilorin, not Offa. When Dr Saraki visited Offa to commiserate with the community in the aftermath of the robbery, he did not donate a dime! I challenge him to prove me wrong." he said.
Recall that In April, not less than 20 persons were killed after armed robbers invaded Offa and raided banks.
