“We Will Ensure Safety And Protection Of Residents” – Oshodi-Isolo Council Boss Cultism Clash

The Executive Chairman of Oshodi-Isolo local government, Otunba Kehinde Almaroof Oloyede, has assured residents of Ogundele, Babayanju, Oba Elewu Road in Ewutuntun area of the council of adequate security at all times, as he said peace has since returned to the area after two cultist groups clashed.

Otunba Oloyede stated that those causing crisis in the area will be dealt with, via the instrumentality of the law as he said one of the group’s leaders has been arrested by the police while assuring that the fleeing members of the cult groups will be apprehended.

The council chairman in a press release by his media office disclosed that, as a government that was elected through popular vote, the interest of the people, especially their security will be of utmost importance under his watch.

Otunba Oloyede also informed that the arrested leader of the terror gang, known as Adera who was nabbed on Tuesday by the Special Task Force is presently helping the police on how other members of the gang will be apprehended.

According to him “let me use this opportunity to appeal for calm from our people, especially residents of Ogundele, Babayanju, Aluko streets and environs, the government is on top of the security situation of not only the affected streets but the entire local government.

Since the government was elected by popular vote, it beholds on us as a responsive government to ensure their interests are protected at all times.

The unfortunate incident of a security breach is uncalled for and unfortunate, but as of Tuesday, the leader of the terror gang has been arrested by the police and presently cooperating with them on how to get other members.””Let it be known that police from the three divisions in the local government have been put on red alert to prevent further clash, and whoever tries to create unnecessary tension or trouble in the entire local government will be arrested and handed over to the law enforcement agents for adequate punishment.

The situation is under control, and I can assure residents. Please go on with your daily activities as peace has since returned to the areas.

It will be recalled that rival cult groups in the area embarked on clashes and in the process damaged parked vehicles and even threatened residents with dangerous weapons which necessitated the invitation of the task force and the division for intervention which led to the arrest of the leader, while others fled.
