AS investigations into the April 5, 2018 robbery in Offa continues, some indigenes of the town, under the aegis of the Concerned Citizens of Offa Community, have called on the Olofa of Offa, Oba Muftau Gbadamosi, to always stand behind his people.
The group, in a statement by its chairman and secretary, Alhaji Moshood Adeogun and Rasheed Muritala, respectively, urged the traditional ruler not to distract the police from conducting a meticulous investigation by his utterances.
The group said: “It is out of place for the Kabiyesi to have classified those that participated in the protest against the robbery as ‘politicians who are not saying the truth,” noting that the protest was dominated by an amalgamated group of artisans, traders, students, government workers and concerned sons and daughters of Offa community.
“At this juncture, we want to call on the Kabiyesi to always stand behind his people. The police should not be distracted from conducting a meticulous investigation and bring all culpable persons to book,” the group stated.
