On Thursday, An ex-secretary to the Oyo state government, Akogun Sharafadeen Alli Friday charged the Oyo state governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde to find the murderers of Ebenezer Ayeni, an HND II student, Department of Music, the Polytechnic Ibadan.
Late Ayeni, who was a departmental Christian President and an owner of a recording studio in Ibadan had plans to get married next week Saturday before he was murdered in his apartment on Thursday.
On this crime, Alli in a statement he signed in Ibadan on Friday morning asked why the state’s security fabric is wearing out when the state government is still a recipient of security votes from the federal government.
He urged Gov. Seyi Makinde to seek help from the last administration if he can not tackle the security issue confronting the state.
The former chairman of Odu’a investment said apart from the issue of insecurity in the rural areas by suspected herdsmen, those in urban areas are not spared too.
Alli who claimed to have lived all his life in Ibadan the state capital noted that he had never experienced what is going on in the state before this time.
The statement reads; “It is true that security issue is general but what we are having here is different from that of other states. If the rural areas are not safe because of the herdsmen which must strictly be addressed, the government must ensure the urban cities in the state are at least safe.
“I am calling on the governor and security agencies to ensure they arrest those robbers behind the killing of Ebenezer Ayeni and HND two student of the Polytechnic Ibadan.
“Just a few weeks ago, the robbers invaded a Community in Ibadan and robbed residents with Point of Sales Machine (POS), the people of Alakia, Akobo, Akala Road and other parts of the state cannot sleep and close their eyes. For how long can we continue with this,” he queried.
