Olaifa Condemns Fulani Herdsmen Attacks; Charges Security Operatives, State Government

AYETORO-YEWA: Hon. Olaifa Jimoh Aremu (OJA), member of the National Assembly, Abuja representing Egbado North/Imeko Afon Federal Constituency in Ogun State has voiced out his consternation on the spate of insecurity in his Constituency.

According to a press release e-signed and made available to StarTrend Int’l magazine & www.startrendinternational.com by Hon. Olaifa, he said, “I am sad to formally bring to the public notice of an unacceptable renewed onslaught of Fulani Herdsmen on my Constituents of Egbado North/Imeko Afon Federal Constituency in Ogun State.

“While my people like others, globally are grappling with the troubling effects of COVID – 19 pandemic, no fewer than three cases of attacks were recorded on the Abeokuta-Olorunda-Aiyetoro/Imeko Road in the last 4days”.

The Federal House of Reps member alleged that the attacks were from Fulani herdsmen.

One Segun Ileyemi was mentioned in the release as one of the victims. He was alleged to have been attacked around Olorunda on Sunday, May 3, 2020 in an attempt to rob him of his belongings.

He was said to have sustained injuries from several stabbing by his assailants as he is still receiving treatment on his hospital bed at the General Hospital, Ayetoro-Yewa.

Another commercial vehicle was said to have been attacked two days ago with the driver allegedly shot and died on the spot.

Hon. Olaifa in the same release mentioned that “a Police woman attached to the Area Command office, Ayetoro-Yewa was kidnapped with her car left by the roadside” with the whereabouts still being tracked by the necessary operatives according to the release.

The Ayetoro-Yewa born lawmaker while lamenting other similar cases in the past pleaded with the security agencies to device better and more proactive measure to put an end to the operations of the attackers.

He stated further, “My last line goes to the State Government under the leadership of His Excellency, Prince Dapo Abiodun, that one is not oblivious of his tireless efforts, but it is just a statement of fact that a lot are still calling for his attention in Egbado North/Imeko Afon Federal Constituency, particularly in the areas of Security and Road rehabilitation as these armed robbers and kidnappers mostly take advantage of the near impassable roads to attack our helpless people”.

ALARMING RATE OF UNPROVOKED ATTACKS FROM FULANI HERDSMEN, CONDEMNABLE SECURITY OPERATIVES SHOULD BE ALIVE TO RESPONSIBILITIES

I am sad to formally bring to the public notice of an unacceptable renewed onslaught of Fulani Herdsmen on my Constituents of Egbado North/Imeko Afon Federal Constituency in Ogun State. While my people like others globally are grappling with the troubling effects of COVID – 19 pandemic, no fewer than three cases of attacks were recorded on the Abeokuta – Olorunda – Aiyetoro/Imeko Road in the last 4days; all in the hand of these tormenting Fulani herdsmen.

One Segun Ileyemi was attacked around Olorunda on Sunday 3rd May in an attempt to rob him of his belongings. He was stabbed severally as he is still receiving treatment on his hospital bed at the General Hospital, Ayetoro. Another Passengers Commercial vehicle on its way from Abeokuta to Ayetoro was also attacked two days ago with the driver shot and died on the spot.

It is gloomy to further note that a Policewoman attached to the Area Command office, Ayetoro was kidnapped same day the commercial driver was shot dead with the officer’s car left by the roadside while the occupant was kidnapped by the men of underworld. I am aware that her whereabout and those holding her hostage is still being tracked by the necessary operatives.

It is no longer news that the dastardly acts of the Fulani Herdsmen in my Constituent of Egbado North/Imeko Afon is legendary as records are available at various offices of security agencies but for how long will this continue?

I plead with the Security Agencies to device better and more proactive measure to put an end to the operations of these neighbours turned enemies as they mostly lay siege on our roads waiting for my constituents to either rob them of their belongings or to kidnap them outrightly.

My last line goes to the State Government under the leadership of His Excellency, Prince Dapo Abiodun MFR, that one is not oblivious of his tireless efforts but it is just a statement of fact that a lot are still calling for his attention in Egbado North/Imeko Afon Federal Constituency, particularly in the areas of Security and Road rehabilitation as these armed robbers and kidnappers mostly take advantage of the near impassable roads to attack our helpless people.

Signed
