Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN) has condemned the latest attacks by forces suspected to be herdsmen on the people of Igangan community in Oyo state.
Gov. Akeredolu who also doubles as the Chairman of the South-West Governors Forum called the attack an assault on human decency.
This was according to a statement personally released by the Governor on Sunday evening.
In his words, “all well meaning Nigerians, must condemn in the strongest terms possible, this latest assault on decency and communal harmony.
“While we will encourage the security agencies to get to the root of this latest act of provocation, we have directed the commanders of the South West Security Network, Amotekun, to convoke a joint security meeting of all Commanders in the South West with a view to commencing joint operations in the region immediately.
“We must reiterate the fact that certain elements are bent on causing friction among the peoples of this country with the sole aim of achieving a pernicious end. They will stop at nothing until their set goal is realized. It is, therefore, incumbent on all lovers of peace and freedom to rise against this current regression into savagery.
“We on our part are resolved to defend our people, their property, and all legitimate means of livelihood against both internal and external aggression. On this, there will be no compromise.”
Gov Akeredolu then concluded by imploring the citizens to remain calm vigilant and to report any suspicious movement.
