Paramount ruler of the Oyo empire, the Alaafin of Oyo; Oba Lamidi Adeyemi has chided the Oyo State Police Command, accusing them of subtly supporting Killer Fulani herders to injure, maim, kidnap, and kill the people of Igangan and other areas in Oyo State. Oba Adeyemi shared his thoughts about the complicity of the Nigeria Police force in a Sunday statement where he reacted to the recent attack on the residents of Igangan community, in the Ibarapa North area of Oyo state. The first-class monarch, in reaction to the sudden and gruesome massacre at Igangan yesterday, hinted that the police were supporting the killings by failing to prosecute suspects handed over to them and also releasing such suspects back into society. In his words, “The wanton destruction of life and property, including the palace of the Asigangan of Igangan, is quite sad.” “Despite all efforts made at curtailing this ugly menace long before it starts staring us in the face, several Fulanis have been arrested and handed over to the police in Oyo State. But there has not been any conviction not to talk of diligent prosecution as the arrested Fulanis are back on the street 24 hours after being arrested for various heinous crimes.”
