Scores of Nigerian youths and students from the Ibarapa geo-political zone in Oyo State on Tuesday protested for the killings of their kinsmen.
According to the report, it was gathered that many farmers and other innocent residents of the area had been killed by some people suspected to be either kidnappers or armed robbers.
The latest killing is that of Dr. Fatai Aborode, a chieftain of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo state.
However, the students and youths in the zone had Tuesday protested against incessant killings in the zone.
Some youths described the kidnapping as a recurring decimal, with many residents of Ibarapa land constantly living in anguish and fear.
While addressing journalists, Mr. Oladiran Oladokun, One of the protesters, urged the State government to mandate Caretaker Chairmen in the zone to clear bushes in Ibarapa land.
Mr. Oladiran Oladokun, who doubles as Convener, Igangan Development Advocate (IDA), urged the Oyo State government to openly condemn such killings and other dastardly acts in Ibarapa land.
Mr. Oladiran Oladokun decried that the State anti-grazing law had only remained on paper with no implementation.
Mr. Oladiran Oladokun said, “We are not anti-government; we are also in government, and we want the government to work.
“During election times, they can come to our own Ibarapa and seek for votes, and now that we are being slaughtered, where is their presence?
“Where is the government’s presence, and why have they been silent since these issues have started?
“Why hasn’t the government made any open denouncement of these, and we are left in silence?”
