Ibadan monarchs blame Makinde for insecurity

The Ibadan Traditional Council has blamed Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde for the worsening insecurity in the state.

It urged him to change tactics before it is too late.

The council gave the advice at its meeting held at the palace of the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, at the weekend.

They said a one-man management cannot work in securing the state.

According to them, attempts to meet the governor and explain why his style was failing the state were unsuccessful.

The traditional rulers accused Makinde of having poor respect for them. They explained that they were excluded in the security architecture despite that they were closer to the people in the communities.

Asking community leaders in Ibadan to raise vigilance groups comprising youths in their areas of jurisdiction, the monarchs said: “What is unfolding security-wise in the state capital looks fearful and raises concern among the people. The reason all hands must be on deck.”
