It is most pathetic to read the news of the armed robbery attack on the United Bank of Africa (UBA) branch situated at Ilara-Mokin, a town in Ifedore local government area.
This incident perpetrated by marauding criminal-minded elements led to the brutal murder of some persons including a popular OAP (Olubunmi Afuye), and destruction of properties which were for public use.
The unpleasant incident is such a bitter pill to swallow. Likewise, it is highly condemnable as it poses a serious threat to the security of our people.
While calling for calm, I join all well-meaning people in the state, who are bothered by this unfortunate incident to call on our National Security Agencies to set all apparatus on motion in ensuring that these elements are arrested and brought to book in order to serve as deterrence to others and to curb the impression that some persons can get away with such heist.
I express my deepest sympathies to the management of UBA, families and friends of the deceased, the entire Ilara-Mokin community, and the whole Ondo state.
Tajudeen Adeyemi Adefisoye, MHR.
Representing Idanre/Ifedore Federal constituency.
