The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, on Wednesday said it is not surprising the spokesman to President Muhammadu Buhari, Garba Shehu has failed to release a statement over gunmen attack at Igangan, in the Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State.
The media aide to the OPC leader, Kehinde Aderemi, stated this in an interview with Punch on Wednesday.
Recall that not less than seventeen people in the community were killed when hoodlum invaded the town on motorcycles around 11 pm on Saturday and started killing and destroying property, which continued until around 3 am on Sunday.
The hoodlums razed the palace of the Asigangan of Igangan, Oba Lasisis Adeoye, but the monarch escaped because he did not sleep in the palace.
Aderemi in his reaction said, “It is very clear that the Federal Government is not even ready to issue any statement regarding the attack. The Federal Government would be the first to condemn such an attack if it had happened in the North but Garba Shehu as he is, we know where he is coming from, so, we are not expecting any miracle from him. As Aare said in a previous statement, those that perpetrated the act are beating the drum of war in the country.”
“Those killed in Igangan town have their families and friends, there is blood flowing in their veins and a moment their lives were cut short by killer herdsmen and bandits in their home,” Adams had alleged.
