Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose has reacted to the bank robbery at Offa in Kwara state.
The incident left 17 persons (according to official figures) dead.
Fayose wondered how the robbers operated freely without the intervention of the police.
The Ekiti governor tweeted: “I sympathize with victims of the Offa, Kwara State robbery that led to the death of over 30 people.
“It is sad that such a terror attack could go on for more than one hour and the robbers were able to escape. It is another clear vindication of the call for self defense.
“Killing of over 30 people in an operation that lasted for over one hour cannot be regarded as mere robbery, it is terrorism! It further shows that under this govt of President Buhari, the country is not secured and Nigerians are now at the mercy of killers. It is sad, very sad.
“I’m still wondering how long it will take Police Helicopters to get to Offa from Abuja or Lagos. Robbery operation lasted for over one hour and there were no police helicopters to trail the robbers? Are those helicopters owned just for decorations?
“Sad that these days, mass killings in Nigeria is no longer Breaking News, it has become a normal occurrence.
“Over 30 people killed in Offa and we are yet to see concrete action from the FG that controls security apparatus? Just imagine this happening in any European country.”
