OYSHA Calls on Makinde to Tackle Insecurity
Oyo State House of Assembly has called on the executive arm under the leadership of Governor Seyi Makinde to put measures in place to curb the growing rate of insecurity in the state.
The house at its plenary expressed concern over incessant criminal attacks in some ibadan metropolis and kidnappings in others parts of the state which the lawmakers blamed on the nefarious activities of suspected criminally minded herders in the state.
In a Motion on “Stemming The Spike Of Insecurity, Killings, And Kidnappings In The State Via Improved Working Synergy Among Security Agencies” sponsored by Mr Gabriel Babajide, the assembly hinted that the state of insecurity required some urgent and drastic measures by the executive arm .
A co sponsor of the motion, Mr Isiaka Kazeem said Oyo state was yet to test the strength of Oyo state Anti Open Grazing law through effective implementation since the law came into existence in the state.
Speaker, Mr Adebo Ogundoyin, in his remark, urged the state government to constitute an Anti Open Grazing Prohibition Task Force, comprising Commissioner For Agriculture, Special Adviser to the governor on Security, representatives of the Commission of Justice, Nigerian Police, and other security agencies as well as the Miyetti Allah Association
Mr Ogundoyin said the step would go a long way to urgently stem the spike in killings and kidnappings in the state.
