Isanlu Robbery & carnage, Olowodola commiserate with victims, task security operatives to apprehend culprits
Prominent philanthropist and community leader, Elder Benjamin Olowodola has commiserated with His Excellency the Governor of KOGI state, Alh Yahaya Bello, Nigeria Police, Senior Special Assistant on Security to the Governor in Yagba East, Agbana of Isanlu, the entire Isanlu community and the families of the victims of the unfortunate Isanlu First bank robbery and attack on the Nigeria Police station.
The elder statesman who described the act as heinous, senseless and criminal says the only thing that can assuage the unfortunate carnage is for the perpetrators to be apprehended and justice rightly served. Elder Olowodola notes that although such incidents have happened in the past but, it was already becoming history since the coming on board of the Yahaya Bello led administration until this very sad and despicable act happened. He says the security operatives therefore must be in desperate search of the murderers in order to nip such occurrence in the bud. He charged the security operatives to trace the identity and address of the detainees who were freed as they surely must have links with the perpetrators of the despicable crime.
*It is very unfortunate that the relative peace and security our hinterlands have enjoyed has been threatened by this wicked act, at a time we are all forgetting the experience of the past, the robbers have brought us to a sad reminder of it, but instead of us to despair or be frightened, I encourage us to collaborate with security operatives by giving useful information that can lead to the arrest of all criminal elements engaging in such act. We are indeed sad that harmless and helpless citizens were massacred, security agents killed in line of duty and precious investment destroyed. We condole with relatives and family of the affected victims and pray that their souls find rest* Elder Olowodola says
He also stated that community efforts at being security conscious enough to report suspicious persons is very well needed at this time. He however appealed to government and spirited individuals to come immediately to the aid of the people by rebuilding the destroyed bank and police station in order to forestall economic collapse the incident might cause for the community.
