Political leaders from Kogi  West Senatorial District yesterday visited Tawari to commiserate with the people over the recent invasion by armed men which led to loss of lives.

The leaders also donated relief materials to survivors to cushion the hardship that they may experience as a result of the crisis.

The team led by All Progressives Congress (APC) leader from the area,  Elder Benjamin Olowodola, were first received by the Aguma of Tawari, Alhaji Yusuf Tawari in his palace which was also torched during the mayhem.

Olowodola said: “My visit here is to personally commiserate with you in your most trying times. My donation is not in any way a compensation for your huge losses, as only God is capable of doing that.”

The APC chieftain who lamented the carnage on account of the hostility called for calm. He appealed to the combatants to sheathe their swords and embrace peace because “we need to co habit with each other to make life worth the while.”

Olowodola renewed his call for them to remain calm as the Kogi State government will do everything within its powers to unravel the mystery behind the ugly incident.

He craves for an environment where every one can go about his or her legitimate businesses without fear of molestation or intimidation.

The philanthropist therefore appealed to the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to provide succor to the displaced persons.

The Aguma of Tawari, Alhaji Idris Yusuf Tawari, who received the items thanked Chief Olowodola for his intervention and demonstration of love promising that his subjects would heed to his advise.

He prayed God to protect and bless Olowodola saying that he has proven to be a true son of Kogi State who has the love for the people.

Responding, the Sole Administrator of Kogi local government area, Barrister Tanko Muhammed Osuku, appreciated Chief Olowodola for his care, saying the items presented by the philanthropist would go a long way to alleviate the predicament of the people.

He used the opportunity to call on other corporate organizations and well-meaning Nigerians to do likewise in rendering support to community and people in time of need.

A member of the delegation and former Kogi West senatorial candidate, Omoluabi Bode Adeyemi said they were in the community to commiserate with the people and also contribute their quota in the rebuilding of the ruins left behind by the attackers.
