The President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has vowed that those who perpetrated Thursday’s attack in Offa will be arrested and brought to justice.

Saraki who took to his Facebook Page to make the declaration said that he had spoken to Kwara Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, and they both agreed that no stone will be left unturned until the attackers were brought to justice.

Residents of Offa on Thursday, witnessed coordinated bank robberies and attack on innocent people, an act which Saraki described as cruel and promised that the attackers would soon be arrested.

“Yesterday’s savage attack on unsuspecting citizens and establishments in Offa LGA, that led to significant loss of lives and injury is a despicable act committed by cruel individuals.

“Make no mistake, there will never be any valid grounds or rationale behind such violence that has left many families without their loved ones — and one more community in grief and shock.

“Last night, I spoke to Governor Ahmed to express my condolence on the lives that were lost in the attack, and we both agree that no stone will be left unturned until the perpetrators of this heinous act are caught and brought to justice.

“It is also important that we all work together to ensure that this does not reoccur. We all must co-operate at various levels to increase the security of our communities.

“I pray that the souls of those that we lost yesterday are granted places amongst the righteous ones. My prayers and support will continue to be extended to all the affected families, and we will remain relentless until everyone who planned or carried out this attack faces the full wrath of the law,” the President of the Senate said.
