Saraki Sad Over Killings In Kwara
The Senate President and a former Governor of Kwara State, Dr. Bukola Saraki, is not happy.
His displeasure is as a result of killings that occurred in his state on Thursday.
Just at the close of business, men of the underworld stormed a new generation bank in Offa and killed four persons in the process.
The victims were believed to be the new generation bank’s security personnel, staff and customers.
According to a report obtained by Bounce News, the robbers numbering over eight, came in unannounced and forced the security door open with bullets and dynamite as the operation went unhindered.
Huge sum of money was carted away, while some vehicles were burnt and others stolen before the heavily armed men escaped through Igosun route in the area.
This incident has left people in shock in the community and Senator Saraki extended his condolence to the affected families.
In a statement, the Senate President described the incident as a 'savage attack carried out by cruel individuals'.
"Yesterday’s savage attack on unsuspecting citizens and establishments in Offa LGA, that led to significant loss of lives and injury is a despicable act committed by cruel individuals.
"Make no mistake, there will never be any valid grounds or rationale behind such violence that has left many families without their loved ones — and one more community in grief and shock.
"Last night, I spoke to Governor Ahmed to express my condolence on the lives that were lost in the attack, and we both agree that no stone will be left unturned until the perpetrators of this heinous act are caught and brought to justice," he stated.
Security of lives seems to be something that Nigeria can't just get right, as killings happen at will and no one knows where is safe any longer.
To guard against such occurrences, Senator Saraki said: "Moving forward, it is also important that we all work together to ensure that this does not reoccur. We all must co-operate at various levels to increase the security of our communities".
He also prayed that "the souls of those that we lost yesterday are granted places amongst the righteous ones.
"My prayers and support will continue to be extended to all the affected families, and we will remain relentless until everyone who planned or carried out this attack faces the full wrath of the law".
