Gani Adams Calls For the Redeployment of Oyo Female CP

The Aare Onakankanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, has advised the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to redeploy the Oyo state Commissioner of Police, Mrs Ngozi Onadeko.

He said this in a statement, on Sunday, via his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, he blamed the Oyo CP for her roles in the detention of the three members of the Oodua Peoples Congress that arrested the suspected kidnapper, Iskilu Wakili, handed him to the police.

The Yoruba generalissimo condemned the police boss over the murder and arson charges pressed against the trio, asserting that cases like this are capable of eradicating the little trust the public has in the police.

He said, “Last week, the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, expressed concern at the spate of insecurity in the state. Kabiesi lamented that over 70 per cent of farmers in Oke Ogun, Ibarapa and its environs could no longer go to their farms because of the fear of being kidnapped and killed by bandits and criminal Fulani herdsmen.

“From what Kabiesi had said, it is no doubt that there is impending danger lurking around the state. If farmers couldn’t go to their farms, then there would be famine and a shortage of food in the State.

“I am appealing to IGP Adamu and the police service commission to redeploy the Oyo CP.”

Adams, further made it known that many of the kidnappers arrested by the OPC and other local security operatives, and handed over to the Police, have been released by the Police returned to their base to keep wreaking havoc and perpetrating more crimes.

He said, “I want to also urge the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, to cooperate with the IGP in ensuring that the state is safe for all and sundry because, from the reports at my disposal, kidnappers are now returning to Ibarapa.

“What becomes of the police when people cannot trust them as an institution? It is unfortunate for the police to accuse the three members of our group of murder and arson after they had assisted them in apprehending Iskilu Wakili, a suspected Kidnap warlord that had been terrorising the people of Ibarapa and its environs.

“But, we wouldn’t be discouraged in our effort. We will continue to play our roles in ensuring that our region is safe against criminal elements.”

Three members of the OPC Awodele Adedigba, Dauda Kazeem, and Hassan Ramon are currently in detention on six counts of conspiracy, arson and murder.
