Makinde urges calm after police arrest OPC members



Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde on Monday called for calm after the state command of the Nigeria Police arrested three members of the Oodua Peoples Congress.

They were arrested after apprehending a suspected notorious Fulani herdsman known as Isikilu Wakil.

The herdsman has allegedly been terrorising the people of the state.

Makinde said in a statement: “We are aware of the events regarding Iskilu Wakili at Kajola community in Ibarapa North LGA, and the Nigeria police’s handling of the matter. I want to assure you that we are taking all necessary steps to ensure that the interests of the good people of Oyo State are protected.

I, therefore, urge all law-abiding citizens of the state to stay calm and go about their legitimate businesses. And to call 615 toll-free to report any security breaches in Oyo State.”
