“As we mark the end of the holy month of Ramadhan, let’s remember and pray for our brothers and sisters who were unfortunate victims of the Offa robbery. Let’s remember their families, friends and associates in our prayers and generosities”, the governor said.
In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Abdulwahab Oba, the governor enjoined Muslims to uphold lessons of endurance, perseverance and piety that the holy month teaches to “endure the pains inflicted in our hearts by the Offa robbery”.

The governor urged everyone to be law-abiding and go about their lawful business peacefully as they celebrate Eid-el-Fitri, “as government will ensure law and order”.
