HONOURABLE Ademola Akeem Ige representing Ibadan South East State Constituency II on Thursday moved a motion to put an end to the incessant night robbery attacks in Ibadan, the state capital.
While presenting the motion titled “Need to put an end to the incessant night robbery attacks on innocent citizens within Ibadan metropolis”, the lawmaker decried the rate of robbery attack on innocent citizens of the state particularly in Ibadan South East Constituency in recent times which he said was unprecedented, stressing that the residents have been given sleepless night by the action of these devilish people while perpetrating their nefarious acts.
Lamenting the spate of insecurity in Ibadan metropolis, Ige disclosed that many innocent souls, comprising two night guards namely, Sulaimon Adekola and Mr Peter, a resident, Mr Delani, a Community Chairman who also doubled as vigilante Chairman, Elder Bola Lawal (aged74) as well as a Police officer attached to Idi-Aro police division, Sgt. Lateef Kazeem were killed during their operation at Ibuko (IMG School), Molusi, Olorunsogo, Molete, Keshinro, Onigari Adeyemo, Eyin Grammar, Felele axis and other locations.
He further explained that apart from the people that were killed, others were equally dispossessed of their valuable belongings ranging from substantial amount of money, mobile phones, electronic gadgets, among other property worth millions of naira.
“The gang moved and attacked residents in huge numbers with dangerous weapons and the security agents were unable to curtail them. It appears the Police are powerless or unable to stem their excesses who always have a field day while looting households in Ibadan metropolis”, he added.
However, all the resolutions made in the motion were unanimously adopted by the House during the plenary which were “that the Special Adviser to the Governor on Security Matter; the Chairmen and Secretaries, Ibadan South East Local Government and Ibadan South Local Council Development Area and the Chairmen, Police Community Relations Council (PCRC) and vigilante group within the Local Government; and the Commissioner of Police, Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) in Ibadan South East Local Government and Ibadan South LCDA and other Heads of Security Agents in the State, be invited to meet with the Committee of the whole house with a view to discussing the measures to take in curbing the menace of the marauders.
