*I AM DEEPLY DEVASTATED BY ISANLU BANK AND POLICE STATION ROBBERY ATTACKS*
Thursday 4th June, 2020 robberry attacks on a Bank and the Police Divisional Headquarters in Isanlu left me so devasted that I could only imagine how such could have happened at this trying time of humanity. Since the report came I was speechless and so confused considering the large number of casualties from our officers and men of the Nigerian Police and the bank personnel. This is one robberry that will linger in our memories in the history of our peaceful coexistence as a people in Yagbaland. Uptil this moment I am still in deep shock.
As the representative of the people of Yagba East State Constituency, I and other stakeholders had briefed His Excellency Gov. Yahaya Bello who has ordered the security architecture in the state to fish out all the perpetrators of this callous, cruel, barbaric and satanic attacks on our people which has dealt a serious blow on our collective psyche and devastating economics consequences to battle with.
I want to seize the opportunity to condole with families of the victims of the unfortunate circumtance, the SSA on Security to Governor, Yagba East, the Agbana of Isanlu, leadership of Isanlu Progressive Union, political leaders and the entire people of Yagba East while praying that God in His infinite mercy will console them and grant them the fortitude to bear these irreplaceable loses.
I am equally appealing to my constituents to come together, remain united, cooperate with security institutions and keep faith with the government in its effort to address this temporary setback to our collective success in the security sector. I am confident that our security network will fish out the perpetrators as directed by His Excellency and they will be brought to justice soonest.
May the Almighty God strengthen us in faith and sustain our security personnel in their services to their fatherland.
