Gani Adams, Yorubaland’s Aare Ona Kankanfo, has condemned the attack on an Oyo State detention facility.
NEWS DIRECT reports that the facility, christened Abolongo Correctional Facility, was attacked by the gunmen Friday evening.
The gunmen set all the prisoners at the facility free during the attack.
The attackers stormed the facility at about 10pm on Friday, using grenades to gain access and set prisoners free.
Reacting, Adams, in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Kehinde Aderemi, said the invasion of Oyo town prison by bandits has exposed the poor security situation in the country.
According to him, the invasion was a national embarrassment, adding that Oyo State and the entire South-west has never experienced such an attack in a very long time.
Adams said, “Oyo town has never recorded such an incident in its long history. It’s unfortunate that insecurity has triggered various types of menace.
“Following the attack on the Abuja-bound train, and the Oyo prison attack, there is certainly no doubt that the bandits are playing out a script that will later engulf the entire nation.
“It’s, indeed, very ridiculous to hear such unsavoury news coming from the ancient town. However, I want to express my concern to Kabiesi, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi and the Oyo state government”
“I’m also using this opportunity to urge the Inspector General of Police to look into the security situation in Oyo and address the problem in the most professional manner. Oyo state is very sensitive to the southwest and we cannot continue to live in fear.”
