The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has slammed Senate President Bukola Saraki for attempting to trivialise the bank robbery attack in Offa Kwara State, which left 33 people dead.

The Minister, who made the remarks on Saturday at the 2018 Ijakadi Festival in Offa town, described the efforts to trivialise the dastardly act as indecent and called on the people to condemn any attempt to play politics with human lives.

Senate President Saraki had said on a radio programme that he gave N10 Milli to Offa Monarch, as against the N7million stolen by the Offa robbers, some of whom were linked with him.

Lai Mohammed hammered him for the ‘reckless’ statement; saying claims of compensating the victims in monetary terms cannot equate the lives lost in the incident.

“In recent days, there have been attempts by some political desperadoes to trivialise the calamity that befell this community when those armed robbers attacked banks and the police station, among others. These desperadoes were quoted as saying that when they visited this town to commiserate with the people after the attack, they donated 10 million Naira, even when what was stolen from the banks’ vault was 7 million Naira.

“Now, let us ask them: How many of those who were killed in that attack have they also been able to bring back? How can any sane person equate human life with money? No amount of money is worth any human life. And no one should play politics with human life. All people of conscience must condemn this glib comment by a desperate political warlord,” he said.
