Picture Of Offa Robbery Gang Leader Relaxing In
A Gym Before His Arrest.
Here’s a picture of one of the gang leaders of the group which
raided various banks in Offa town in Kwara state. 37-year-old
Ayoade Akinnibosun has been identified as the man that
coordinated the operation after working with Adikwu, a former
police corporal, who killed a total of 22 people during the robbery
While speaking to the press, Akinnibosun narrated how the
operation started in Offa after he received guns from Adikwu.
He said, “ That fateful day, it was me, this man sitting beside me
here (Ogunleye), Adex, Stand Well Well, and Niyi; it was the five of
us. I came to join them at Ajase then we took off with a Mercedes
Benz to Offa.
“On getting there I now positioned everybody; me I stood at that
junction, that Total filling station there. On getting to that filling
station, we now met that Michael, that dismissed police officer. On
getting to meet Michael, Michael came down from one Audi, there
was a Nissan parked in front of us, he now came out of that Audi
and threw his hands we now saw him and parked at the back of
that Nissan. He now came out and brought guns out of that
Nissan, five AK-47s, and gave it to us. Then I shared it between
the five of us inside our Benz.”
He also named the senate president and Kwara governor as his
political sponsors whom he’s done ‘political arrangements’ for for
He said, “ I am the chairman of Liberation Youths Movement,
Kwara South. My involvement with the senate president is we’re
his boys; we work for him at Kwara South. We’re the ones that
hold Kwara South for him. We’ve been working for him since he
was Governor of Kwara.
“We mobilise and do political arrangement there (Kwara South).
For example, where we can’t win, we make dabaru (disruptive)
arrangement there; we scatter elections if we don’t win.
“The connections between me and the senate president is that
he’s the one that is arranging everything for us. For example, this
car (a Lexus jeep GX-300) was given to me by His Excellency
(Governor Ahmed) through the Chief of Staff of Kwara state as a
gift from leader, Bukola Saraki. I participated in the Offa robbery. I
took this Lexus car along to Offa.
“The senate president and governor of Kwara state (Ahmed), we
have been their political thugs, and that’s what encouraged us to
do what we’re doing.
Nine police officers and 24 others lost their lives when a group of
at least 30 armed robbers attacked Union Bank, Eco Bank,
