KAI Warns Kwara Opposition Party Not To Politicize the Safety Of Offa People

Don’t politicize the safety of the Offa people, Kwara Advancement Initiative (KAI) warns

A sad and unfortunate castigation, The Kwara Advancement Initiative (KAI), notes the act of a certain faceless group whipping up baseless and spiteful sentiments in guise of wailing than the bereaved on the prompt temporary succor from the IGP to the Offa Community on the gruesome bank robbery incidence yesterday.

The cold-blooded commercial banks armed robbery incident in Offa which left many homes permanently devastated has highlighted the need to beef up the security in the Kwara South’s economic nerve centre.

The quick response of the IGP, a commendable act, the deployment of the Armoured Patrol Van to Offa is in no small measure well appreciated by the Offa community and its environs.

A quite comic relief in this case is the comparison of Osun State strategic placement of Armoured Personnel Carrier. It is quite unfortunate, because the APCs became necessary as a result of the aftermath of the bloody political battle fought in the state, not forgetting that Kwara has predominately been known as a peaceful state, even the Ijakadi l’oro Offa does not mean we are troublesome people in nature and carriage.

The APC in question was supplied by the IGP but apparently was pulled from another sensitive location for Offa. We should focus on the functionality not the optics.

We therefore are reiterating that Offa people appreciate the effort of the State Government and the Senate President for their considerable influence which effected the IGP’s response. We also urge the IGP for quick release of the APC to Offa/Kwara as soon as possible.

Once again, we enjoin all Kwarans to stand up in unison and join hands in helping the Kwara Government to put in place a Security Fund Scheme which shall procure necessary gadgets and other logistics for security operatives and agencies in the State.
