Gbenga Obalowo, in a bid to join the state government in the fight against Insecurity, has equipped local security agents in the council with a number of motorcycles, cutlasses, security boots among others.

Obalowo, while addressing journalists over the weekend at the premises of the council, noted that the level of insecurity in Ibarapa land is alarming but will be fought to a standstill.

Obalowo maintained that the step was taken to put a stop to the killings by criminal herdsmen.

In his words: “This nefarious activity increases day by day. We know the state government is doing its best and cannot do it all. That is why we are equipping the security agents to compliment the efforts of the present administration in Oyo State as being led by His Excellency, Engr. Oluseyi Makinde to curb Criminality and rescue the people of grassroots from these dangerous people.

“I want to believe all of these will go a long way to help us curb criminalities in Eruwa, Lanlate, and its environs. In the coming week, I want to assure that we will make provision for more. Enough is enough. I cannot continue to fold my arms.

He, however, urged the residents not to wait till they are attacked before raising alarm of any security threat in the neighborhood.

Present at the auspicious occasion were the Heads of Departments and their deputies of the HLGA, Alh.Wasiu Bolade Babalola, the Vice-Chairman, traditional rulers, political leaders, and all the security agents of the local government.
