If you come to equity with clean hands, you will always be absolved of any purported crime leveled against you. Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki is extremely happy at the moment.

A major step to remove one of the biggest stains of his career has been taken, and the pragmatic politician is proclaiming this development for all to see.

He is celebrating a development that cleared him of alleged involvement in the infamous 2015 Offa bank robbery.

Two petitioners at the Judicial Panel of Enquiry on ‘EndSars’ in Ilorin, Kwara State claimed that officers of the disbanded SARS (Special Anti-Robbery Squad) forced them to implicate Saraki.

The petitioners, Alhaji Kehinde Gobir and Alhaji Shuaib Jawando, said they were tortured and spent 73 days in Ilorin and Abuja to make them implicate Saraki in the robbery operation that resulted in multiple deaths.

They admitted that they are political supporters of Saraki. Police counsel, Adekunle Iwalaye, prayed the panel should dismiss the petitions in their entirety. Bukola Saraki, inspite of all his travails has just proven that he is a cat with nine lives.

He shared a screenshot of the headline and screen to the story on his social media page with the caption, “Alhamdulillah, like light, the truth will ALWAYS come out.’’
