Suspected Fulani herdsmen were reportedly stormed Oha village in Imeko, Imeko-Afon local government area of Ogun state at around 1 am Sunday morning killing Dele Olowoniyi.
The assailants were said to have been reportedly shooting anything in sight and destroying the people’s properties after which they were said to have allegedly slaughtered a resident, one Dele Olowoniyi.
However, Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka, three-time governorship candidate in the state has condemned this needless attack and the avoidable death of Olowoniyi describing the attack as barbaric and one that shamefully violated the sanctity of human lives.
The Imeko born Chartered Accountant and politician said, “I am traumatized by this gruesome and inhuman act that has left myself, the communities and well-meaning Nigerians devastated”.
“Those who perpetrated this evil are not only enemies of Imeko-Afon, but enemies of Nigeria and humanity. This has continued unabated for too long and it is clear something must be done to halt the endless killing of our people”.
The APC Chieftain requested the Nigeria Police Force to initiate a thorough probe into the Sunday attack just as he urged the federal government to urgently stem the tide of the barbaric killings across the country.
He stated, “We have had enough of these wanton killings all over the country. Now they have gained entrance into yorubaland and now hitting on our people in Yewaland. Our people should not be left to protect themselves when we have security agents. At no point should our people’s safety be under any form of constant threat.”
Isiaka condoled with the family of the slain Olowoniyi and indeed all residents of the villages shattered by the attack.
“My prayers and thoughts go to the family of Dele Olowoniyi.” May God grant his soul eternal repose”.
