Gov. Ajimobi Directs Security Agencies to Fish Out Those Behind Attack on Olubadan Palace

The Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, on Monday directed security agencies in the state to fish out those behind the attack on the palace of Olubadan of Ibadan land, Saliu Adeyanju, Monday morning.
A statement by Yomi Layinka, Governor’s media aide, said the government had directed security operatives to bring the masterminds of the attack to justice.
Some yet-to-be identified gunmen stormed the palace of the Olubadan during the installation of local chiefs at the Popo-yemoja palace of the monarch earlier on Monday.
A former Secretary to the Oyo State Government, Sharafadeen Ali, together with some journalists were among those caught up in the mayhem.
They, however, escaped by the whiskers as the gunmen shot into the air, daring those in the palace to come out and confront them.
In his statement on Monday afternoon, Ajimobi said the government would not spare anyone who attempted to throw the state into chaos.
“The Governor condemns the said act in its entirety and has directed security agencies to ensure that the masterminds are swiftly arrested, interrogated and brought to justice,” the statement said.
“The Governor has vowed not to brook anyone or group of people desirous of bringing back the regime of violence and brigandage to the state.
“He wishes to reiterate his commitment to the security and protection of lives and properties of all citizens of Oyo State, which he has laboured hard to restore and maintain in the last six years,” Layinka added.
