Governor-elect of Kwara, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, has promised to interface with the police to ensure that those implicated in Offa robbery were promptly prosecuted.
He said that he would ensure that the judicial process was logically concluded and perpetrators brought to book.
Abdulrazaq made the pledge at a media briefing on Sunday night in Ilorin where he delivered his acceptance speech amidst All Progressive Congress (APC) party supporters.
He noted that the state had become so insecure to the extent that banking operations had been suspended in the entire Kwara South senatorial zone, after the Offa robbery saga,
“This development is seriously affecting the economic development in the zone. We will interface with the Police to address the challenge of insecurity
“The Offa robbery where 33 people were killed, based on police investigation was linked to top government officials,’’ he said.He also pledged that his administration will be accountable to the people and will not steal or loot the state’s treasury.
Olajide TV understands that the Nigerian Police had earlier accused Senate President Bukola Saraki of being the sponsor of the robbery.
Olajide TV gathered that the Nigerian Police Force has pointedly told Senate President Bukola Saraki not to entertain any sense of relief over the death of Michael Adikwu, a major suspect arrested in connection with the deadly multiple robberies in Offa last April. Police said the five suspects arraigned in court in Ilorin, Kwara State, had already given them enough clues about Saraki’s involvement in the robberies and they were determined to prosecute him.Olajide TV had also reported that Saraki Lost his Senatorial seat to the APC in the just concluded election.
