Dr. Obadiah Mailafia, the former Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, has blamed the recent attack which happened in Igangan on the Failure of state security to its people.
The Former CBN Deputy Governor, once contested for Presidency under the umbrella of African democratic Congress (ADC), he made this disclosure while addressing journalist in Ibadan, the capital city of Oyo state.
According to our correspondent, twenty people were killed during an attack on the people of Igangan in Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo state by suspected Fulani Herders who according to report invaded the town between Saturday evening and Sunday morning.
The Ex-presidential candidate while speaking with journalist said the incident resulted from the failure of the state to secure their people.
He insist that the attack was successful due to the failure of the federal and state government.
The people of Oyo state do not deserve the current security challenges they are currently experiencing, Mailafia added.
He further, called on Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari to visit the affected communities (Igangan) and commiserate with the victims of the incident.
“This carnage in Igangan is a failure of state security. You need to come to see the people of Oyo State and commiserate with them on the failure of our Federal and State to protect its citizens.
“We, therefore, find it truly reprehensible that this kind of situation can be tolerated.
“We are very angry and heart-broken on what happened in Igangan and we condemn it.
“Mr. President, you are the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The Nigerian people voted for you. One of the first Directive Principles of the Nigerian constitution is that the state shall guarantee the security and welfare of her citizens.
“So, Mr. President, I appeal for you to visit this state. The people of this state are very peaceful and enlightened. They don’t deserve what is happening to them.
“And if you don’t do it, the youth will take over. Sunday Igboho and his team are waiting. Where the government cannot come to their help, they will help themselves. The choice is yours Mr. President.
