Yesterday was a sad day in Offa, Kwara State, after heavily armed bandits laid siege on the whole town slaughtering innocent Nigerians indiscriminately without compassion. The central police station according an eyewitness was sacked and policemen & women were slaughtered. Four banks were raided at the same time and security men were killed at sight.
According to Nigerians who frequent the town, Men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, otherwise known as SARS are always seen parading the town but wondered why they were no where to be found while the bandits unleashed mayhem on the town. See their reactions below;
I’m a regular visitor to offa town in kwara state, SARS officials are visible everywhere & always harass unnecessarily. The question is; where were they when an army of thieves invaded the town & rob 1,2,3,4,5 banks.. 5!!. Shot several civilians dead
This is saddening!! #offa

I don’t understand how they were able to rob 5 banks successfully in Offa without Police/SARS intervening.

Stop attack on internet fraudsters and face armed men.

Let me get this straight @PoliceNG, so SARS that you’ve refused to scrap, that relentlessly harass young men in Offa and Ilorin, were on duty and nearly 40 people were killed by armed robbers hitting five banks?

You see when we said #EndSARS, we knew exactly what we were talking about. There’s no way in this world that SARS officers will not be anywhere close-by during that Offa robbery. They probably were part of the robbery or they simply were busy searching people’s phones.
