Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, has condemned the attack by gunmen on Abolongo Correctional Centre in Oyo town, which led to the freeing of an unspecified number of inmates at the facility.
According to Gani Adams, it was perpetrated by bandits who are playing a script that will engulf the entire nation.
This is as he urged the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, to look into the security ituation in Oyo.
“Oyo town has never recorded such incident in its long history. It is unfortunate that insecurity has triggered various types of menace,” he said.
Adams added, “Following the attack on the Abuja-bound train, and the Oyo prison attack, it is certainly no doubt that the bandits are playing out a script that will later engulf the entire nation.
“It is, indeed, very ridiculous to hear such unsavoury news coming from the ancient town. However, I want to express my concern to Kabiesi, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi and the Oyo state government”
“I am also using this opportunity to urge the Inspector General of Police to look into the security situation in Oyo and address the problem in the most professional manner. Oyo state is very sensitive to the southwest and we cannot continue to live in fears.”
