The Oyo State House of Assembly has condemned the rising spate of insecurity in the State and has therefore called for a joint security operation among all Security outfits to stem the tide.

The State House of Assembly rising from an emergency meeting on the situation in the State stressed the vital need for the Police in conjunction with other security agencies including the newly established Amotekun Corps and other Vigilance groups to commence all round surveillance of every nook and cranny of the state in-order to identify and arrest perpetrators of various heinous crimes in our midst.
They assured that as legislators ,they are ready to work with the State Government and other Stakeholders especially in the area of giving legislative backings to plans and activities aimed at enhancing the security of lives and properties of the citizenry
The lawmakers particularly sympathize with the people of Ibarapaland on the surge in killings, kidnapping, armed robbery, banditry, rape among others in the zone in the last few months.
The Legislators called for Justice for the victims of these crimes while also suggesting compensation for farmers whose investments have been destroyed by herders.
They were unanimous in saying that the full implementation of the anti-open rearing and grazing law across Oyo State was long overdue.
The Oyo State lawmakers said this would help in reducing and addressing incessant conflicts between farmers and herders in various communities in the State.
The Speaker, Hon Adebo Ogundoyin who chaired the emergency meeting said the Oyo State House of Assembly was not against any ethnic group in the State, but added that the legislature will support all efforts put in place to wage total war against criminals, kidnappers, armed robbers and rapists living in Oyo State.
