Igangan attack: Security men did nothing despite the earlier warning – Gani Adams

The Aare Ona Kakanfo in a statement released by him made it known that despite apparent awareness of the gunmen's plot prior to the attack, security agents refused to neutralize the attack

On Saturday, Gani Adams, the Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, reacted to the latest attack on inhabitants of Igangan in Oyo State’s Ibarapa area.

Yorubas can no longer mourn the incessant killings of Yorubas by the Fulanis in Yorubaland, according to Adams.

His Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, released an official statement on his behalf.

Despite apparent awareness of the gunmen’s plot prior to the attack, security agents refused to neutralize the threat, according to Gani Adams.

As a consequence, he urged local security and security officers to work together just to avoid similar strikes in the area.

Friday’s attack on residents of Igangan confirmed the alarm raised five days ago by the Oyo state coordinator of the OPC, Rotimi Olumo.

We got the information of the attack, and it was widely reported in the media that the killer herdsmen were on another mission to provoke and wreak havoc on residents of Ibarapa, especially, during the festive period, but it is said that nothing was done by the authorities concerned.

It is on this note that I urge all the local security in the area to support the security agencies in the state to put a lid on the spate of insecurity in the area.

We cannot continue to lament the killings of innocent people in Ibarapa and its environs.

The gunmen dressed in Customs uniform had attacked the Ibarapa area of the state on Friday night.
