The Senate President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, Senator Bukola Saraki has revealed that the money that was stolen in his house is just N12 million contrary to a report that N300 million was stolen by a popular online media.

In a statement signed by his media aide, Yusuph Olaniyonu, the Senate President said that his domestic aides were responsible for the theft is not true; saying the perpetrators were yet to be identified. He also said the money stolen was N12 million and not N300 million.

Mr. Olaniyonu did not mention why the Senate President, who is being prosecuted for false asset declaration, needed that much cash in his house. He, however, said the money was not public funds.

Olaniyonu who urged the public to disregard such  information said that there is no truth in the claim by online media 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”, Olaniyonu said.

“For the umpteenth time, we need to reiterate the fact that the medium’s fixation that any money spent by Saraki or that is in his possession is from Kwara State Government is unfounded, unwarranted, lacks any basis and irresponsible”
