Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde, has commended the Nigerian Army and other security agencies for quashing the invasion of Yoruba Nation agitators and keeping the peace in the state.

Makinde stated this when he received the 46th General Officer Commanding of 2 Mechanised Division, Odogbo Barracks, Ibadan, Major-General Obinna Onubogu, at the Governor's Office, Secretariat, Ibadan.

The governor, who seized the occasion to throw light on the invasion of the government secretariat last Saturday by suspected Yoruba Nation agitators, explained how the effective security system in the state was able to bring the aggressors to their knees in no time.


Makinde commended security agencies in the state for the roles they played in stopping the invaders and apprehending them, stating that the emergency security response system was activated and that it worked perfectly to arrest the situation on time.

He thanked the Nigerian Army and other security agencies for their swift response in arresting the agitators, noting that though there were security gaps, what the miscreants met was beyond their imagination.

“On what happened on Saturday, the Emergency Security Response was activated, and it actually worked. The response was quick, timely and I believe the hoodlums and miscreants met something that was beyond their imagination. Within one hour, everything was under control.


‘'Let me use this opportunity to thank you and other security agencies in the state. Everybody responded timely and we are grateful for the timely response.


“Concerning the unfortunate incident, what I can say is that we must win the war but we must also win peace. It is a challenging period.


“Anybody in the position of authority in this country, whether military, political or governmental positions, even people leading in our communities are challenged at this time because, as a leader, if people you are leading are hungry and angry, we have to put heads together and see how we can minimise some of those causative agents of this type of situation,” Makinde said.


Earlier, Major-General Onubogu stated that the warm reception accorded him showed the cordial relationship that had always existed between the Oyo State government and the Nigerian Army.


Onubogu, who appreciated Governor Makinde for his tremendous support for the Division over the years, assured the government and residents of the state that the Army would continue to collaborate with sister security agencies to secure Oyo State and its people.
