Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, yesterday condemned the invasion of the Ola residence of the former Minister of Information, Labaran Maku, by suspected bandits.

The suspected bandits were reported to have invaded the residential home of Maku at Ola in Akwanga Local Government Area of the state at about 7:50 p.m. last Saturday, and left three security guards fatally injured.

However, Governor Sule, while speaking in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Public Affairs, Peter Ahemba, described the incident as unfortunate, and directed the police and other security agencies in the state to ensure that the criminals were brought to book.

Sule, therefore, reassured the state that, “as a responsible government, the security of lives and property as well as the general well-being of the citizens will continue to be a top priority by my administration.

“The state government is already partnering the top military command, the police and other para-military agencies to ensure that the bandits fleeing from other parts of the country as a result of military offensives do not have a hiding place in Nassrawa State.”

The governor also warned criminal elements operating under whatever guise to leave or desist from their evil ways as the state has no hiding place for criminals.

Sule, on behalf of the state government and the people, extended his deepest sympathy to the former Minister of Information over the unfortunate incident as well as the injured security personnel, who were on duty at the time of the invasion.
