OYO: Ibarapa youth throng Makinde’s office demand release of remanded OPC members

YOUTH from nook and cranny of the  state, particularly those from  the seven towns making up the Ibarapaland thronged the State Secretariat located at Agodi this morning to register their displeasure at the incessant killings by criminal herdsmen in Ibarapaland, Oke-Ogun and other parts of the state.

The youth are also demanding the release of the three members of  the Oodua Peoples Congress in prison on the order of the court.

The three members were part of the vigilante groups that captured the dreaded Fulani herder in Ibarapaland, Iskilu Wakili. They were layer charged with murder and arson and were remanded in prison.

Armed with placards with various inscriptions denouncing killings, kidnapping, rape and massive destruction of farms and other atrocities.

One of the organisers of the protest, Oladiran Oladokun, who is also the Converner of Igangan Development Advocates, told The PUNCH on the sidelines of the protest that the arraignment and remand of the three OPC members was a signal to many Nigerians that security agents should be left alone to do their job.

He said Wakili terrorised the people for so long and despite their refusal to arrest him, the OPC members and others risked their lives to arrest the septuagenarian herder but the they detained by the police on the same day.

Oladokun said, “We are here to protest the arrest and remand of the three OPC members in prison. These men are heroes, they risked their lives to arrest Wakili who has terrorised the people of Kajola, Ayete and other villages.

“They went to Wakili’s place and arrested him but the police turned against them and detained them. This is a bad signal to Nigerians on security issues.”
