I hope the security measures work. And pray for a more peaceful kwara state. I console with the people of offa. And I pray such event shouldn’t happen again.

According to a source, the robbery lasted for more than an hour and many banks were robbed, many lives lost. They went into the commercial banks and broke in with dynamite, took a lot of money yet to be known. The attacked banks were, Guaranteed trust bank, eco bank, union bank, zenith bank and first bank.

Another informant while condemning the attack, said, it was a very bad attack to the city, and it is a slap to the state, as non of the many robbers were caught.

A source claimed they clamoured for more security measures in the city,  before the brutal attack, but didn’t state the steps taken by the community. The robbers attacked the police head quarters, and overpowered the police force massively, before proceeding to the robbery attack, he added.
