Adegbola Speaks On Cult killings In Ogun, Blames Gov. Abiodun, Parents

To surmount the current security challenge and other vices bedeviling the country especially Ogun State, the state government has been advised to do more to find the roots, those behind it and bring them to book.

This was according to the Governorship Aspirant under the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State, Prince John Adegbola while reacting to the recent cult clashed in the state capital which left innocent residents to be living under fear.

Adegbola took a critical look on
state of insecurity in Ogun state and the incessant cult clashes said it was regrettably that the state government under the leadership of Prince Dapo Abiodun can allow the recent cult killings spread from Abeokuta, to Sagamu, where no fewer than eight persons were reportedly killed on Monday.

The gubernatorial Aspirant who also divided the blame between the government and the parents said a responsible government who claims to have spent huge on security should not have fold arms and allow the state to be bleeding.

The pandemonium started since the death of one "Tommy" which members of Eiye and Aiye confraternities has continued to engaged in a supremacy battle.

Though the police said 18 persons have been arrested so far but calm seems not to have been restored as the crisis has now escalated to Sagamu, Remo axis of the state and no fewer than eight have been reportedly dead.

To this end, Adegbola said aside government responsibility, parents also have to wake up and rise up to the challenges.

He regretted that family values are no longer being upheld, parents no longer take responsibility of their family and children left been abandoned, grow up to hate themselves, they feel they were deprived, they feel injustice and they become enemies of the state and constituted authorities; and thereby becoming vulnerable to crime and violence.

Adegbola said government also need to do more to find the roots and sponsors also ensure that those who are apprehended face full wrath of the law.

The Guber Aspirant said it is an obligation of the government to protect her citizens, but failure to do so and failure to investigate and prosecute those responsible for the killings created an atmosphere of fear and bloodshed in the state.

He call on the Police authorities to take more robust action to stop these attacks by investigating every clash and bringing perpetrators to justice. 

Adegbola also called on residents to assist law enforcement agents to identify miscreants living within our communities, saying that the perpetrators live somewhere and not ghosts.

He therefore appealed to the immediate society to control their emotion and allow peace to reign.
