Following the deadly robbery attack in Offa, Kwara State, the management of one of the commercial banks has reportedly sacked five of its workers.

Five staff of one of the commercial banks recently attacked by deadly armed robbers in Offa, Kwara State, have reportedly been sacked by the management of bank for releasing Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) footage of the robbery to the public.

According to a report by TheCable, a reliable source in the bank said the management viewed the release of the footage without official approval as “gross indiscipline,” which was capable of affecting the security and image of the bank.

A video clip of the incident had gone viral shortly after the armed robbers had on Thursday, April 5, invaded five banks in Offa, Kwara State, killing scores of residents, including policemen, bank workers and passersby, revealed how the robbers entered one of the banks.

It was gathered that the management of the bank was surprised at how the video got into public space and sacked five of its workers last Friday.

The Kwara State Police Public Relations Officer, Ajayi Okasanmi, said the Nigeria Police Force would also deal with anyone linked to the robbery.

Okesanmi spoke in response to reports that the Divisional Crime Officer and the Divisional Police Officer of the Offa Police Station allegedly failed to take necessary actions before the robbers attacked.

It was also said that the robbers only collected the phones of the DPO and the DCO and allowed them to escape. Okasanmi said both civilians and uniformed men linked to the incident would not go scot-free.

While saying that investigation was ongoing, he noted that the police were determined to get to the root of “persistent robberies” in Offa.

“Whether civilian or police, whoever is found culpable would be dealt with accordingly,” he added.
