Yoruba Nation Agitators’Buildings Demolished On Court Order – Oyo Govt

Oyo State government has disclosed that the two buildings belonging to Yoruba Nation Agitators were demolished based on court orders.

The State Commissioner for Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Mr. William Akin-Funmilayo, who spoke with newsmen on Thursday, said the buildings were demolished on court orders.

According to Akin-Funmilayo, the buildings located at Shagari area,Toye Oyesola Street, Boluwaji and Zone 4, Irorun Oluwa community, both in Oluyole Local Government area, Ibadan, were demolished on Tuesday by the state government.

He added that the state governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde would continue to prioritise safety of lives and properties of the people of the state.

According to him, “The demolition was carried out on Tuesday and was based on an Oyo State High court order. The court order was to the effect that the structure should be demolished.

His words, “I will say one or two things about the order. It has to do with the Yoruba Nation agitators as this building belongs to them as contained in the court order and it is captured in the court order that it is believed that the building housed dangerous weapons and firearms. The activities going on there constituted a threat to peace and tranquility in Oyo State”.

“I will advise residents around these areas to have a rest of mind, government is out there to secure lives and properties and when such a threat comes up, the government will take immediate actions”.

“However, I want to implore residents around these areas to always inform the appropriate authorities whenever they notice any suspicious activity in their area. As His Excellency, Engr Seyi Makinde, always says, ‘if you see something say something”.

“Security should be the concern of everyone in the society; the government can only act on the information that you give it”.

“Once again, I implore everyone, whenever we see anything that could be a threat to lives or peaceful living, please bring it up to the attention of the government to protect lives and properties”, he stated.

In a related development, the state government also demolished a facility being used by suspected illegal miners to process and package lithium out of the state.

Mr Akin-Funmilayo added that the facility, located at Idi Ayunre, Oluyole Local Government area of the state, was demolished after obtaining a court order for that purpose.
