Oro Community Disowns Arrested Offa Bank Robbery Suspect


The National President of Oro Community in Irepodun Local Government Area of Kwara State, Chief Bode Alayoku has said 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.

In a statement on Wednesday, Alayoku said Ogunleye is not a native of Oro but from Etan-Aiyegbaju in Ekiti State. He explained that the suspect was nabbed in Oro by the Police while he was allegedly trying to escape from justice. Alayoku said, “No family bears Ogunleye in the entire history of Oro town.”


  1. He’s from Etan, Ekiti LGA, Kwara State, not Etan-Aiyegbaju. He was my classmate in primary school. His parents were both teachers then.
