Following the Offa Bank robbery, the Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed has said his administration will procure additional Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs) to ensure the protection of lives and properties across the state.
He made the disclosure during the swearing-in of a new Khadi of the state Shariah Court of Appeal, Mas’ud Oniye.
Ahmed assured residents that his government would do everything within its powers to ensure that the people of Offa and Kwara never experienced such a tragedy again.
The governor appealed to residents of the state to resist any attempt by anyone to use the Offa robbery attack for political purposes.
According to Ahmed, “Those utterances do not reflect our values as Kwarans and should stop out of respect for the dead and the injured.
“For the avoidance of doubt, let me reassure Kwarans and indeed all Nigerians that the culprits will be apprehended and brought to justice swiftly.
“Presently, the police and other security agencies in the country have begun a vigorous man-hunt for the perpetrators of the dastardly and horrid attack on the peaceful and industrious people of Offa.”
