Killings: Revisit our security plans, Ibadan family heads tell Makinde

The Ibadan family heads, otherwise known as Authentic Mogajis, during the weekend asked the Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde, to revisit their security plans to avoid incessant killings in Ibadan, the state capital.

Some Ibadan family heads and the governor had put together security committee shortly after the governor was sworn in but later neglected.

Speaking through the spokesman of the Authentic Mogajis, Mogaji Wale Oladoja, the family heads queried why the committee was not effective again in the state.

Family heads warned politicians across political parties not to play politics with the lives and properties of the poor masses in the state.

Oladoja who lamented the killing of about 24 youths and OPC members in Oopo, Abebi and Inalende area of Ibadan said the killings were avoidable if the needful was done before now.

Daily Trust reports that there were reports of killings of another five innocent residents during the weekend, including a radio presenter, Titus Badejo in Ibadan, the state capital.
