Igangan: ‘Attack Predetermined To Wreak Havoc On Residents’ – Gani Adams
The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, on Saturday, said that the attack in Igangan was grossly predetermined to provoke and wreak big havoc on the residents of the area.
Adams, who spoke on the heels of Friday’s attack in Ibarapa, said in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Kehinde Aderemi, condemned the attack in the area, one of the seven prominent towns in Ibarapa area of Oyo State.
The Yoruba generalissimo, while declaring that the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) and the southwest security Stakeholders Group (SSSG) will not allow bandits and killer herdsmen to turn Ibarapa to their haven, maintained also that the recent killings in Igangan confirmed the alarm raised five days ago by the Oyo state coordinator of the OPC, Mr. Rotimi Olumo of the planned attack by gunmen on residents of Ibarapa during the festive period.
Aare Adams, however, expressed worry at the killings, saying the sad event occurred when unknown gunmen invaded the town Friday evening, shooting for over 30 minutes.
He said information at his disposal revealed also that the assailants allegedly wore customs and army uniforms, even as they were initially repelled by local hunters, which eventually, led to the death of five persons in Igangan, and Ayete while a Commander of Amotekun was also killed in Igbo-ora, Ibarapa North local government.
