The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, has said it is not surprising that presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, is yet to speak on the attack by gunmen at Igangan, in the Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State last weekend.
This was stated on Wednesday by Kehinde Aderemi, media aide to the Aare Onakakanfo.
According to Police Spokesperson in Oyo State, Adewale Osifeso, no fewer than 11 people were killed in the attack when hoodlums invaded the town on motorcycles.
The palace of the Asigangan of Igangan, Oba Lasisi Adeoye, was also razed by the gunmen, but the monarch escaped because he did not sleep in the palace.
Commissioner of Police in the state, Ngozi Onadeko, had condemned the attack and urged residents to remain calm and trust the police while promising that those behind the attack would be apprehended.
Reacting to the silence of the Presidency on the attack which has been widely condemned, Aderemi said, “It is very clear that the Federal Government is not even ready to issue any statement regarding the attack. The Federal Government would be the first to condemn such an attack if it had happened in the North or affected Northerners but Garba Shehu as he is, we know where he is coming from, so, we are not expecting any miracle from him. As Aare said in a previous statement, those that perpetrated the act are beating the drum of war in the country.”
