Kwara Elders’ Unity Forum is the latest to add their voice on the Offa robbery saga calling on the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki to allow the police do its investigations.
A statement signed by a trio of Dr. Saliu Ajia, Chief (Alhaji) Isiaka Jimoh and Engineer Adebayo Daramola representing Kwara Central, North and South respectively said revelations and political colorations being given to the confessions of the arrested suspects showed that the lives of Kwarans are in danger and must be protected.
According to the forum, the robbery in Offa would not have drawn the attention of the public but for the killing of 33 people including nine police officers, pregnant women and the mention of the Senate President Senator Bukola Saraki.
The group while warning against politicizing the issues also said the Inspector General Of Police should be allowed to do a thorough investigation for the ordinary citizens of Kwara State and for the sake of poor common innocent Nigerians.
Kwara Elders’ Unity Forum is known to be led by the former governor of the state and later, Federal Minister of Communications, Chief Cornelius Adebayo.
