Don’t Distract Police Investigation - Offa Indigenes Tell Monarch

Some indigenes of Offa, Offa local government area of Kwara state have called on the Olofa of Offa, Oba Muftau Gbadamosi Esuwoye II not to distract the police by his utterances, from conducting a meticulous investigation into April 5th robbery incident in the town.

They accused the monarch of supporting the Senate President Bukola Saraki in a newspaper interview recently. The indigenes under aegis of Concerned Citizens of Offa Community urged Oba Gbadamosi to “retrace his steps by tendering an unreserved apology to the great people of Offa for insulting their sensibilities.”

The group in a statement by its Chairman and Secretary, Alhaji Moshood Adeogun and Rasheed Muritala said the Olofa’s assertion was totally against the interest of the citizens of Offa community.

The statement reads: “It is out of place for the Kabiyesi to have classified those that participated in the anti-Saraki’s protest as ‘politicians who are not saying the truth.’ probably, he was not sufficiently briefed when he came back from lesser hajj as the anti-Saraki’s protest was dominated by the amalgamated groupings of artisans, traders, students, government workers and concerned sons and daughters of Offa community who patriotically participated in the protest to defend the hard-earned integrity and the future of the town.

“Instead of calming frayed nerves and empathising with the trumatised and brutalised people of Offa, Oba Gbadamosi was desperately playing the role of a mouth-piece to Senator Saraki whose integrity he was defending in vain.

“At this juncture, we want to call on the Kabiyesi to always stand behind his people at all times as majority of Offa citizens are becoming too apprehensive, losing confidence in his capacity and ability to lead the community to the promised land. The police should not be distracted from conducting a meticulous investigation and at the end , bring all culpable personalities directly or indirectly involved in the incident to book.
