The authenticity of the story is not yet established but the story may not be far from the truth. A kidnap gang in the South-East was busted simply because a woman spilled the beans.

He attended the University of London, and St George’s Hospital Medical School, London. He worked as a medical officer at the General Hospital and the Creek Hospital, all in Lagos.

Dr. Bukola Saraki arrived at the 1st Baptist Church, venue of the wake-keep, around 1:30pm, only to meet his sister already seated with her friends and security aides.
Senator Bukola Saraki was a two-term governor of Kwara State between 2003 and 2011 and current Chairman, Senate Committee on Environment and Ecology in the national assembly.
Prior to 2003 when he rode on the back of his late father and former Senate Leader, Dr Olusola Saraki, young Bukola Saraki had worked in the banking sector and later served in the presidency under chief Olusegun Obasanjo-led government.
