A group, Kwara Must Change, says it has compiled the names of at least 14 persons murdered in the deadly armed robbery attack on banks in Offa Community, Offa Local Government Area of Kwara State.
The group so far unveiled the identities of 10 police officers and four civilians, promising to update the compilation as more details emerge. Recall that an Operations Commander, Vigilance Group of Nigeria, Offa, Kwara State chapter, Wasiu Adepoju, had claimed vigilantes in the state recorded about 50 dead bodies after the armed robbery attack.
Kwara Must Change, which stated this in a statement signed and issued by its convener, Abdulrazaq O. Hamzat, on Friday, also said that five banks were robbed by the fearless robbery gang.
The group expressed its resolve to preserve the memory of the victims, through compiling and documenting their names, not only to ascertain the figure, but to also immortalize them.
Noting that the April 5th attack in Offa is the fourth occurrence in 10 years, the group stated that in the past three incidences; there was no record of the victims anywhere, neither did the state government take any measure to improve the security of the community.
The statement reads, “We are of the views that, had the Kwara State government properly supported the police and taken adequate measures to prevent future occurrence after previous encounter, probably this latest attack would have been averted. However, this is not a time for blame, but a time for collective solidarity.
“All Kwarans must come together to contribute their part in other to ensure peace and security in the state.”
Kwara Must Change sympathized with the family of the victims, the Offa community and the entire Kwara state, stressing that the state government should lead the way in immortalizing the victims by engraving their names and declaring April 5th as a day to remember those who were killed.”
Meanwhile, the names of the 14 victims so far collated were presented below:
1. Mr. Jamiu Adekunle Alawode, a 40 year old banker at Stockcorp
Micro-finance Bank in Offa. He left a wife and 4 children. He is from Ijagbo, Oyun local government area of Kwara State.
