- The Oyo State Government has revealed those behind the killings in Igangan in the Ibarapa local government of the state.
EKO HOT BLOG reports that the Oyo State Government has said that the operatives of the Nigeria Customs Service raided Igangan and other parts of Ibarapa areas of the state on Friday night, and not unknown gunmen as widely reported.
Mr. Taiwo Adisa, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde made this known via a statement in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on Saturday.
The CPS stated that those behind the Friday attack was made known by Ibarapa community leaders during a fact-finding meeting between a team of the state government and political/traditional leaders of the affected communities on Saturday.
EKO HOT BLOG had earlier reported that some assailants, on Friday night, attacked Igangan in Ibarapa North Local Government and Ibarapa Central Local Government Areas of Oyo State.
It was gathered that the gunmen who were alleged to have dressed in Customs uniform stormed the communities around 8pm and killed three residents.
However, the Chief Press Secretary stated that “the political and traditional leaders of Ibarapa extraction at the meeting, described the Friday raid on Igangan, Igbo-Ora, and other communities in the area by men of the NCS as unnecessary and not well-thought-out.
“They called on the leadership of Customs Service to regulate operations of its personnel.
“It will be better if the authorities restrict them to border towns to end unwarranted attacks on innocent communities,” Adisa noted.
