A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Oyo chapter, Afeez Bolaji Repete has expressed concern for the security and safety of the good people of Oyo State due to the ongoing conflict between Governor Seyi Makinde and the ousted Chairman of the Park Management System, Mukaila Lamidi, also known as Auxiliary.
This was contained in a press statement personally signed by the party’s chieftain and made available to newsmen
Bolaji Repete revealed that Mukaila Lamidi, better known as Auxiliary, was the result of a seed planted by Governor Seyi Makinde five years ago because the ex-PMS boss, who has been declared wanted by the police, was given authority by the governor, even as he condemned the sporadic shootings in some areas of the state.
Oyo residents want to know who purchased those weapons for them. Thus, the APC chieftain charged the police to look into the original source of the weapons and ammo that were found in the Auxiliary’s Ibadan home.
‘Auxiliary is a political ally of Governor Seyi Makinde. They began their alliance in 2019 and have been friends for a long time. Together, Governor Seyi Makinde and the Auxiliary have been spotted at political events like rallies and public gatherings.
“Gov. Makinde ought to be able to help the police with their investigation by identifying the organization funding their nefarious activities.” Who purchased these weapons for them? When was the last time Governor Makinde saw the Auxiliary and his men carrying weapons? These are issues in which Governor Makinde ought to be involved.
According to Afeez Bolaji, a former deputy national youth leader of the ruling party, Governor Makinde dismantled the effective security system that he had inherited from the late Senator Abiola Ajimobi out of political and self-interest.
Bolaji praised the police for their prompt action in preventing the state from degenerating into chaos and urged the state’s police chief to step up security and order a thorough inquiry to find the reason of this impending calamity.
There is no reason not to feel terrified. I estimate that more than 98 percent of the illegal weapons and firearms seized at the Auxiliary house are still in use. I also implore the wonderful people of Oyo to exercise caution and diligence, he continued.
