The Nigeria Police has denied the rumors that the ringleaders of the Offa bank robbery, with the suspected connection to Senate President, Bukola Saraki and Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara State, have been killed in custody.
Nothing has been heard of the superior Micheal Adikwu, a dismissed policeman, and Kayode Opadokun after other suspects were seen paraded two weeks ago.
The two have not been allowed to speak publicly or paraded despite being in detention.
In a confession issued by Adikwu after his arrest, explained why he killed many people during the April 5, 2018, deadly operation.
Adikwu speaking to the police operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT), said that he personally shot dead 20 persons, mostly policemen, in payback for his sack from the Force.

In an interview with journalists, Ayoade Akinnibosun, one of the suspects paraded by the Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, revealed that Adikwu was their leader used his police influence to secure the arms and ammunition they used in the attack.
Moshood also added that the suspected ringleaders were in police custody and helping with the investigation.
He told Thisday: “They (Adikwu and Opadokun) are alive, helping the police further in the investigation of the bank robbery, including the recovery of 21 AK 47 riffles carted away by their gang during the attack on the Offa Police Divisional Headquarters.”
Moshood contested the rumor that two suspects had been killed extra-judicially, stating that whoever says the two suspect have been killed should produce their bodies. “Police don’t kill people, they protect people,” he said.
The spokesman also confirmed that Saraki’s written response to the allegations against him had been received by the investigators.
“I was told by the investigators that he has made a written response to the allegations by the suspects,” Moshood said, adding that he could not say more in order not to jeopardize an ongoing investigation.
