Governor of Oyo State, Engr Seyi Makinde on Saturday gave a hint on the possibility that the much talked about killing of a notable Oyo State indigene Dr. Fatai Aborode May not have been in the hands of Fulani herdsmen.
Makinde, while featuring on a live programme said he met Aborode’s father who told him in Ibarapa that his late son did not drive on the day he was killed but was on a motorcycle.
“Baba said Dr. Aborode was on a motor bike when he was attacked. The rider was not hurt at all. There were other people that were stopped too and nothing happened to them. The attackers where speaking Yoruba,” he said
Confirming that one of those who killed Aborode has been apprehended, Makinde said he has challenged the security agencies to ensure that all those engaged in dastardly acts are brought to book in the state.
He said “I spoke to the security agents and asked them what has been done and directed the CP that the person who did this should be arrested. He has now been arrested and he said he will name all the people that were there on that day. I believe very soon we will get to the bottom of it.
“I am not saying we don't have Fulani criminals. Yes, we do. However we must remember that our enemies are the criminals no matter their ethnicity. So we must remain focused on going after criminals.”
Warning Nigerians against fake news, Makinde said that people are fed with wrong and negative information which push them to act in deadly and dangerous manners.
“My appeal to people spreading fake news on social media is they should think deeply because they all have family in the state if this spills out of control. I believe God will do the right thing to the people trying to disrupt the peace of the state.” He added
