Sequel to an armed robbery attack on Monday that left over seven people dead at commercial bank in Idoani, economic activities at the neighbouring Akoko area were on Tuesday paralysed.
Commercial banks in the four local governments, especially in Ikare-Akoko, were shut down.
Many people, who came for transactions, returned home without achieving their aim.
Meanwhile, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu on Tuesday gave a marching order to security agencies to arrest the robbers, who attacked a bank on Monday at Idoani in Ose Local Government.
Akeredolu spoke on Tuesday when he visited the Alani of Idoani, Oba Olufemi Olutoye, at his palace.
The governor, represented by his deputy, Agboola Ajayi, described the incident as unfortunate, but implored security agents to fish out the perpetrators.
Akeredolu assured people that his administration would partner security agencies to tighten security.
He urged residents to assist the security operatives by giving them information, to reduce crimes.
Oba Olutoye said the hoodlums also entered his palace by damaging the entrance door, “but their efforts eventually became fruitless.
He appealed to the government to assist the bereaved families.
However, security operatives said they have arrested a suspect with links to the robbery.
