Iwo osun state robberyOsun State governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, on Wednesday said those responsible for the robbery in Iwo, Osun on Tuesday will not escape justice.
Aregbesola stated this in reaction to the dastardly robbery attack on some banks that took place in Iwo on Tuesday, which left four casualties in its wake.
The four people killed were men of the Nigeria Police Force, who braved up to stop the activities of the men of the underworld.
In a statement by the governor’s director, Bureau of Communications and Strategy, Mr. Semiu Okanlawon, Aregbesola described the incident as unfortunate, adding that he has been assured that security men are on the trail of those who invaded the banks.
While assuring the general public of their safety and security, the governor noted that it was not for nothing that the state is rated one of the most crime-free in the country, vowing to maintain this record no matter the odds.
Aregbesola, however, promised that the long arm of the law will soon catch up with all those who committed the heinous act as no criminal violates the peace of the state and walk away freely, just as he also commiserated with the Commissioner of Police, Osun State command for the loss of his gallant officers in the service to fatherland.
The statement read, “On Tuesday, June 6, 2017, some misguided elements violated the peace in Iwo, one of our major cities in the State of Osun; attacking banks located near the Bowen University. These armed robbers ended the lives of four promising men of the Nigerian Police Force who attempted to stand up to them. They left sorrow and tears in their trail.”
“We commiserate with the Commissioner of Police, the entire Osun Command of the Nigerian Police Force and the families of the fallen heroes, who fought gallantly but sacrificed their lives in the course of performing their duties. We equally commiserate with those who were caught and wounded in the cross fires.”
Meanwhile, Osun State Commissioner of Police, Mr Fimihan Adeoye yesterday said no arrest had been made in connection to the Iwo robbery incident, disclosing that investigation was already ongoing to apprehend the armed robbers.
