I am very saddened by the tragic events at Offa today. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who died in the armed robbery attack in the town today. I am in constant touch with the security agencies in the state and have urged them to do all within their power to secure Offa and environs and bring the attackers to justice. I have also directed the health services to rapidly deploy emergency services to treat those injured in the attack. My heartfelt condolences to the people of Offa and the families of victims of today’s attack.
Many people will be looking to see if the governor matches words with action as Kwara state’s 2nd largest town is in serious risk of not having effective banking services. Armed robbers attacked the town in 2013 with the town yet to fully recover from the aftermath as banks are wary of expanding to the area.
