Militants’ Atack: Ogun Urges Residents To Be Calm

Gov. Ibikunle Amosun

The Ogun State Government has noted with deep regret the recent
and unfortunate invasions of some of its communities by suspected militants who
wreaked havoc on residents and national assets in the areas.
The affected communities are Ibafo, Arepo, Ebute Ibafo, Elepete
and Kajola towns in the Obafemi Owode Local Government Area.
Government views these invasions as a direct attack on it and will
confront it with every available force.

Towards this end, we are already collaborating with security
agencies to unravel the causes and bring those behind this mindless destruction
of lives and property to justice.
We are not only determined to apprehend and bring the perpetrators
to book alone, ultimately our resolve is to forestall these unwarranted attacks
on our people.
We hereby appeal to residents of the State, particularly those in
the affected communities to remain calm as Government will leave no stone
unturned to end the onslaught which is a threat to the peace the State is noted
The good people of the State would recall that the Senator
Ibikunle Amosun 
CON FCA led administration on assumption of office gave priority and
have continued to priotize the issue of security which has yielded immense
results with near zero crime rate across the State.
We further assure residents that we will not relent in our efforts
and will not spare undesirable elements threatening the peace we have enjoyed
over time.
We also want to use this opportunity to appeal to residents, royal
fathers and opinion leaders to be vigilant and report all suspicious movements
or gatherings to the security agencies.
