Ifo Needs Security Attention

Attention of the security agencies in Ogun State have been called to the break down of law and order at Ifo area of Ogun State.

According to Hon. Olakunle Oluomo, a member of the Ogun State House of Assembly in an SOS message he sent out, which is now virile on internet, the strong member of APC in Ogun State invites the attention of security agencies in Ogun State to the crisis looming at Ifo, apparently to forestall total break down of law and order.

His words: “Yesterday (Sunday April 21, 2019) was the final Akoogun festival in Ifo and one of the boys opposed to APC during the last election invited many of the political thugs and unionists that were involved in attacks against me and APC supporters during the elections.

“I learnt SARS trailed one of the boys to the venue for gun possession and got him arrested with the gun, others surrounded the police to prevent the boy from being taken away, took the gun back from the policemen and even attempted to seize AK47 from one of the policemen.
“in the melee, one of the boys was killed and the policemen escaped from the scene.”

Oluomo stated further that, “The boys later regrouped and started attacking any APC members or supporters in sight, accusing them of inviting police.

“They later mobilized themselves in large numbers, moved to my constituency office and set ablaze 5 vehicles ( 3 Mercedes 42 seater buses, 1 Isuzu Luxurious bus and a 36 seater coaster bus) that I use for free school shuttle.
“The entire office was razed down and they later moved to the constituency of Ifo / Ewekoro Federal Rep, Hon. Ibrahim Isiaka and burnt it down as well.

“I must state here that they have been trailing me since i won the 9th March election, in fact, I have to seek police protection for my house and office for the first two weeks after the election because they keep threatening that they will bring me down on or before May 29th.”

Oluomo however appeal to all security agencies in Ogun State to quickly give special attention to Ifo, saying, “I understand they planned another attack for today (Monday April 22, 2019) again.
“I want to call on the Police to order thorough investigation into the matter with a view to bring the perpetrators to book.”
