Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Sunday, June 5, disclosed that his Ilorin, Kwara state was robbed and N12 million was carted away.

He said the robbery occurred two weeks ago at the administrative quarters of the house, adding that the matter has been reported to the police.
He made this known in a statement signed by his spokesman, Yusuph Olaniyonu.

The lawmaker dismissed a report published by Sahara Reporters that his domestic aides were responsible for the theft, saying the perpetrators are yet to be identified. He also clarified that the money stolen was N12 million and not N300 million.

"The unknown persons broke into the safe in the Administrative Office and stole the N12 million. The incident had since been reported to the police and the Kwara State Police command are investigating the matter with a view to nail the culprits.

“There is therefore no truth in the claim by SaharaReporters that the money ran into hundreds of millions, that it was in foreign currency or that the incident happened in Dr. Saraki’s room. The amount was simply in Naira. Also, the money has nothing to do with Kwara State Government," the statement said.











It is unclear why Saraki, who is currently facing trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) for false asset declaration, kept that amount of cash at home.
