….wants army to support police’s effort

Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the State of Osun has pleaded with the warring groups in Irepodun Local Government Area of the State to sheath their sword and give peace a chance.

He has also ordered immediate deployment of armed policemen with support from the army to restore law and order in the troubled area immediately.

The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Ismail Omipidan, who made this known in a statement on Sunday, said Oyetola gave the order during a marathon meeting with heads of security agencies in the State on Sunday morning, where the situation in Ilobu and Erin-Osun was critically examined.

The statement said the Governor counselled residents and citizens not to take laws into their own hands, insisting that two wrongs do not make a right.

He was also quoted to have said that the peace and unity of the local government area was important and should not be compromised.

“As government, we are resolved to do everything possible to protect citizens from actual and potential threats. To this end, we have ordered immediate deployment of security operatives to restore law and order.

“I want to appeal to our people not to destroy our collective heritage by taking laws into their own hands. Two wrongs don’t make a right. I therefore appeal to the warring parties to sheath their sword and allow peace to reign,” the governor added.
