Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde has reportedly invited the state Commissioner of Police, Ngozi Onadeko on the recent twist in the security situation in Kajola, Ibarapa North Local Government Area of the State.

Recall that some members of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) who arrested a suspected kidnap kingpin, one Iskilu Wakili in Ayete, Ibarapa area of the state on Sunday March 7 were nabbed after being accused of murder and an arson attack.

Gov. Makinde who reacted to the arrest while performing a symbolic presentation of school notebooks to secondary school students across the state on Monday March 8, stated that he’s been given an assurance that the police will do a thorough investigation into the security situations in the area.

He also called on the residents of the state to stay away from ethnic profiling. Makinde said;

“I am aware of what is going on in Kajola in Ibarapa North local government area of Oyo state. I will like to use this opportunity to tell our people that, the government is doing everything within its power to ensure that there is no miscarriage of justice.

“Anyone that is found wanting or that has broken the law, irrespective of their ethnic background or their religion will be dealt with in accordance with the law of the land.

“So, people shouldn’t go into overdrive. I have asked the Commissioner of Police to see me today and I have been given the assurance that they will do a thorough investigation into the security situations in the area.

“And I appeal to our people to please let us be calm. Please let us refrain from ethnic profiling; let us have trust in the ability and the capability of the people saddled with the responsibility of maintaining law and order within our state.

“It is the government that you put in place and the government will continue to work in the interest of the people of Oyo state.”
