"Gentlemen of the press, it is saddened and disheartening that our state has degenerated to the level that nobody is safe again.

A former Chief Whip of the Oyo state House of Assembly, Hon. Abiodun Adigun-Hammed, on Wednesday, asked the state governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde to stop accepting that he has failed the people, but, to take action in combating insecurity facing the state.

The former lawmaker further noted that the issue of insecurity is not limited to Igangan, in Ibarapaland alone, but also in every part of the state.

Adigun, who stated this at a press conference organised to address security challenges facing the state, said it is in the record that the immediate- past governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi left landmark achievements in the area of security and infrastructure, which according to him are the bedrock of development in any society.

He noted that Governor Makinde lacks experience in the ways he is handling the security challenges facing the state at the moment, adding that; “Makinde is asking Federal Government to license AK47 for Amotekun corps when he refused to motivate the gallant corps financially.”

The former chief whip, who is also, a Member of the Planning and Technical Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, said many residents of Ibadan, the state capital and other areas of the state cannot sleep with their two eyes closed.

Querying what the governor has been doing with his security vote, Adigun said, Oyo state people are more concerned about the development of the state rather than happening in another part of the country.

“Gentlemen of the press, it is saddened and disheartening that our state has degenerated to the level that nobody is safe again. Our people cannot sleep with their two eyes closed again. The insecurity is not limited to Igangan alone but in the nooks and crannies of Oyo state. From Beere to Olodo, from Ojo to challenge. No place is safe.
