Hoodlums broke in through the ceiling to rob this phone accessory shop
A member of the House of Representatives, Olaifa Jimoh Aremu, yesterday raised an alarm over what he called “renewed onslaught on his constituents in Egbado North/Imeko Afon Federal Constituency in Ogun State by suspected herdsmen.”
Aremu, in a statement yesterday, lamented that “no fewer than three cases of attacks were recorded on the Abeokuta-Olorunda- Aiyetoro/Imeko road in the last four days.”
The lawmaker expressed worry that “while the people were battling with the troubling effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, some suspected herdsmen were unleashing terror in the area.”
Aremu, who appealed to the Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, the police and other security agents in the state to tame
the challenges, said a poor road network had rendered commuters on the Abeokuta-Olorunda-Aiyetoro/Imeko road susceptible to attacks.
“I plead with the security agencies to devise better and more proactive measures to stop these attacks as the killers mostly lay siege to our roads, waiting for my constituents to either rob them of their belongings or kidnap them. “My last line goes to Gov Abiodun.
One is not oblivious of his tireless efforts, but many people are still calling for his attention in Egbado North/Imeko Afon Federal Constituency,
particularly in the areas of security and road rehabilitation, as armed robbers and kidnappers mostly take advantage of the near-impassable roads to attack our helpless people,” he said.
