The minister of Information, Lai Mohammed has said, “Cultism, robbery and other forms of criminality has become the hallmark of Kwara State.


 He said this in his address at the commissioning of the ultra-modern Mobile Police barracks on Thursday in Offa, Kwara State.


Mohammed said, “What we are doing here today is very strong message to support the Nigerian Police and is very apt considering what happen on 5th April, we all remember the sadness; the massacre of 33 innocent lives by hoodlums and what some people have done is to ensure that it never happen again.
“I want to use this opportunity to call all the police in Kwara State that with what Offa people have done today, they’ve given you the necessary support rid not just Offa but the entire state of hoodlums , cultists, armed robbers- of all the desirables. This is a call to duty for Nigerian Police to double their effort in ensuring that Kwara State is safe for all.

According to him, “It is unfortunate that Kwara State in recent time has become volatilise for criminality; Kwara State in recent time has made headlines for armed robberies, killings or act of cultism. These is why I believe the police will rid this community and Kwara State of all criminal because no investor will come into a community which is control by thugs hoodlum and cultist. Those who witnessed what happened few days ago will agree with me that cultists, hoodlums and rogues are still very much active in Kwara State.

“I plead to Nigerian Police as we are approaching election that you must please double your effort to make sure everybody should be free to cast their vote.  You must do this before the general election.
“I commend the Offa Descendant Union for undertaking this kind of project. The people of Offa have shown us what the community can do to bring development to its town.

He urged other community to emulate what Offa community has down to lessen the burden on government.

Also, Olofa of Offa, Oba Mufutau Oloyede said, “the project we are donating to Nigerian Police today cost us N700millions and we finished in within 6months.
He noted that, “prior to April 2018, the issue of security has been a concern and a challenge in my domain. As a people, we have never rest our oars. We were committed to things that will advance the course of Offa. We have made sacrifices in the past. When armed robbers struck in 2014, the issue of mobility was raised; we gave out 7 Hilux vehicles to various security operatives in the community.

The monarch commended the people of Offa for their support in ensuring the project was completed.

I thank Kwara State governor, Alh Abdulfatah Ahmed for making good promise for another Police Station, the project has since been completed even though not yet commissioned. He concluded.
