Tawari Invasion: A Wicked Manifestation Of Man’s Inhumanity To Man – Chief Olowodola Commiserates With Victims

Businessman and foremost Kogi West APC Leader, Chief Benjamin Olowodola has comiserated with the Governor of Kogi state, Alh. Yahaya Bello, The Aguma of Tawari, Alh Yusuf Tawari and the entirety of the Tawari community over the unfortunate and dastardly act of midnight killing of innocent people in their sleep, burning of houses and property in such a wanton dimension. Chief Olowodola made the statement in a press release made available over the weekend, stressing that until this unfortunate occurrence, Kogi People have been enjoying relative peace, security and sleeping with their two eyes closed, as a result of huge investment and deliberate actions the government of Alh Yahaya Bello has taken on security matters since his election in 2016.

Chief Olowodola says the latest attack is a manifestation of Man’s inhumanity to Man and wicked attempt to draw Kogi back in the area of security, he therefore condemn the attack in its entirety and demand the security agents to fish out the perpetrators of such dastardly act. He says all stakeholders must join hands with the government to ensure that the trend is nipped in the bud.

“I feel very devastated and sad to hear news of such gruesome attack on the innocent and peaceful people of Tawari community leading to the death of nineteen innocent souls, burning of the palace of Aguma, houses in the community and essential properties. While I like to commiserate with His Excellency the Governor, my friend, the Aguma and the entire Tawari people at this trying moment, I condemn in strongest term, such wickedness, destruction and killing, I have known Tawari people to be peace loving, hardworking and very friendly, I have come to identify with the people over the years, I have been a partner in their community development, I have invested in helping to build their public school and have enjoined great relationship with the King who is my personal friend, I can therefore say that Tawari, like any other community in Kogi West and indeed Kogi State is my home. Hearing such a sad news about the community is most devastating. I commiserate with the entire community in this trying time and promise to be with them in the process of rebuilding the destroyed places. It is important that I place it on record that the government of Alh Yahaya Bello has done brilliantly well in securing lives and properties, his administration since inception in 2016 has invested heavily in security and has reduced to invisible level, the security situation, there used to be a time when almost all banks were afraid to open for business in Okunland because armed robbery was a daily occurrence, when kidnapping was an almost daily happening but Governor Yahaya Bello changed the tide and people can now go about their normal business, we believe the Tawari incidence will be well handled and security apparatus put on alert to forestall the activities of wicked people trying to cause mayhem

The Elder statesman also advice every people of good conscience and goodwill to join hands with the government to ensure that our youths are gainfully employed or have an entrepreneurial skill to take their minds away from crimes. He said the Youth Empowerment & Skills Acquisitions Centre he personally built in Kabba was envisioned to train thousands of youths who are currently not employable, he says the centre gulped millions of naira but he decided to build it for public use out of his desire and dreams to assist young people to find fulfilment and source of income in life.
