Ajimobi Fingers Opposition Politicians as Mastermind of Olubadan Palace Attack

Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has fingered opposition politicians as the mastermind of the Monday’s attack on the Palace of the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Akanmu Adetunji.

Ajimobi, who spoke through his Special Adviser on Security, Mr. Segun Abolarinwa while addressing journalists at the end of a security council meeting on Tuesday pointed accusing fingers at those he called failed “politicians” as the suspected masterminds of the recent disturbances emanating from the installation of some Obas.

Abolarinwa who said though security agents had not come to any conclusion over the matter, disclosed that “preliminary reports available to the government suggest that political opponents bent on disrupting the peace of the land were behind Monday’s incident”.

He said, “The suspected hoodlums must have acted on the instructions of some failed politicians who are trying to exploit the traditional institution to stage a comeback and return Oyo State to the inglorious days of violence, brigandage, thuggery, killings and arson.

“We shall not allow anyone or group, irrespective of status, religious or political leaning, to take us back to the dark days when Ibadan earned the unenviable tag of a garrison command through the unscrupulous activities of some incorrigible elements.

“The governor had warned during the installation ceremony of our Obas on August 27 that the Olubadan palace and our revered traditional institution risk being used as staging post for the nefarious activities of failed politicians.

“My appeal to Baba, the Kabiyesi, is to be wary of the antics of those who may wish to exploit his warmness and accommodating posturing to foment trouble.

“The government wishes to reiterate that it will not renege on its commitment to the security of lives and property”.

Abolarinwa then warned that the full weight of the law would be visited on whoever attempted to undermine the peace of the state, which, he said, had remained the credential of the administration in the last six years.
