Chief Bode Alayoku, the National President of Oro Community in Irepodun Local Government Area of Kwara State, has stated it is false and misleading for media reports to suggest that one of the arrested gang leaders of the recent bank robbery in Offa, Mr. Kunle Ogunleye, aka ‘Arrow,’ is a native of Oro community.

Alayoku revealed that Ogunleye is not a native of Oro but from Etan-Aiyegbaju in Ekiti State in a statement released on Wednesday.

He stated that the suspect was arrested in Oro by the Police while he was allegedly trying to evade justice. He added further that Ogunleye has no family in the whole of Oro has no family bear the name.

According to Punch, Dr. Ali Ahmad, the Speaker, Kwara State House of Assembly, stated that the House is committed to supporting the State Police Command to achieve success in its bid to rid Kwara State of crime and criminality.

He also enjoined the Police to ensure that its officers and men operated within the ambit of law and continue to discharge their duties professionally.

He made this known while leading the Principal Officers of the House to pay a courtesy visit on the new State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Aminu Saleh, in his office in Ilorin.

Saleh assured that the Command would work to achieve a sane society, and called for partnership from every stakeholder.
