The Oyo chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde to convene security summit over Saturday’s killings in Igangan, Ibarapa North Local Government area.
This was contained in a statement signed by its publicity Secretary, Dr. Abdulazeez Olatunde on Sunday in Ibadan. According to the statement, the security summit would help find a solution to insecurity in the state.
The APC appealed to the Governor to forget the rhetoric of having Àmotekun and Operation Burst, as both had proven to be ineffective.
The party said that it was obvious that there were security lapses all over the state, saying the Governor also admitted the carnage which occurred in Eruwa area of Ibarapa East during the May 22 local government election.
It also asked how the Governor has been utilising the monthly security vote allocated to his office, considering the insecurities presently faced in the state.
The party also said it would keep giving advice and encouraging the Governor to be proactive with the security issues in the state.
“Obviously and certainly, the current situation of Oyo State was not what Makinde and PDP took over from the immediate past APC government in the state under Gov. Abiola Ajimobi in 2019.
“The excuse of general security issues has been with us in Nigeria since 2009 even before Ajimobi took over the mantle of governance in 2011. In spite of the issues, Ajimobi secured Oyo State” the statement said.
TOS New, as confirmed by Oyo State Police Command, reported on Monday that armed bandits killed 11 people in Igangan attack on Sunday.
