According to report reaching oyogist.com, Lawmakers of the Oyo State House of Assembly have expressed worry at the increase in incidences of robbery, gang violence, looting of shops, killing, vandalisation of property and other criminal acts, across the state
The members raised this concern while contributing to a Matter of Urgent Public Importance raised at Tuesday’s plenary by Chairman, House Committee on Security, Honourable Akeem Obadara.
In what he described as a terrible Monday night, Obadara reported that hoodlums exchanged bullets, looted shops, took over the streets at Idikan, Iyana Ayeye and Agbede Adodo in Ibadan.
He particularly noted that the resurgence in unleashing mayhem, the exhibition of gang violence, criminality came in the wake of #EndSARS protests.
While pointing to efforts of officers of the state joint task force, known as Operation Burst, to combat crime, Obadara urged the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Joe Nwachukwu, to, as a matter of urgency, deploy police officers to arrest the trend of criminality in the affected areas.
He bemoaned that the police seemed not to have fully returned to duties, after the #EndSARS protests, urging them to come back to their duty posts
