2 held over Ibadan bloody clash


Two persons are now in police net in connection with the Tuesday attack on the convoy of former governor of Oyo State, Senator Rasidi Ladoja, at Lalupon township of Ibadan city.

Two persons are now in police net in connection with the Tuesday attack on the convoy of former governor of Oyo State, Senator Rasidi Ladoja, at Lalupon township of Ibadan city.

A popular aide of the former governor, Mr. Sunday Igboho, has also been declared wanted over the violent clash which left about 10 people critically injured.

Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Miss Olabisi Okuwobi, told Daily Sun on Thursday that a manhunt had been launched for Sunday Igboho, whom victims of the clash accused of leading the attack team of Ladoja. She was, however, silent on the identities of the two arrested persons, who, she said, were being interrogated by police detectives at the State Criminal Investigations Department (SCID).

“All the victims of the clash claimed that it was Sunday Igboho that shot them. So, we are already on his trail. Nobody can turn Oyo State into jungle city again after sanity has been restored. That the Commissioner of Police (CP), AIG Udom Ekpoudom, is on leave does not mean the thugs can do what they like. Act of thuggery is still outlawed in the state,” Okuwobi stated.

Okuwobi disclosed that all those implicated in the violent clash would be brought to book as the police command has ruled out any act of thuggery in the state.
Meanwhile, the State Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Mr. Raph Ibeazor, has read the riot acts to all politicians in the state and their godfathers overany act that could disrupt the relative peace in the state, especially as it related to the conduct of the by-election slated for Saturday, January 26.

Ibeazor, who summoned a meeting of all political stakeholders in the state in preparation for the by-election into Lagelu/Akinyele Federal Constituency, disclosed that all his officers have been put on red alert on any act that could breach public peace in the state.

“I need not warn of the consequences of being caught, as it is better imagined than experienced. We can justifiably say without any iota of contradiction that criminals, political jobbers, political thugs, political godfathers and miscreants shall be frontally confronted within the purview of the law.
"The political parties should vehemently resist the temptation of using violence of any form before, during and after the bye-election

“Politics as a means of service to humanity should not be used as a manager of death, sorrow, injuries and so on, for it is only the living that can be represented in the House of Representatives,” the police chief stated.
Yesterday stakeholders' meeting was attended by security personnel from the Nigerian Army, State Security Services (SSS), para-military organizations as well as representatives of the political parties that would participate in the by-election.
