The Ogun State House of Assembly, on Tuesday, directed the State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Professor Abayomi Arigbabu, to interface with security agencies, the Parents Teachers Association, and other stakeholders on how to checkmate the spate of violent attacks by students of public schools in the state.
The Speaker, Hon. Olakunle Oluomo, made the call while responding to the submission of a member representing Abeokuta North State Constituency, Hon. Modupe Mujota and her Odeda counterpart, Hon. Oludaisi Elemide, under Personal Explanation at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.
Condemning the clashes which often disrupted economic activities of residents in the affected areas, Oluomo challenged the Commissioner to brainstorm with the leadership of the Parents Teachers Association (PTA), security agencies and community leaders with a view to taking drastic steps to forestall the reoccurrence of such act; advising parents to improve on the monitoring of their wards to have first-hand information on their activities while outside the home.
The Speaker equally tasked the State Government on the issue of insecurity at Olokemeji-Olowo area, a border community between Ogun and Oyo States through a more coordinated joint security operation to dislodge bandits from the forest reserve in the area.
He further noted that security challenges bedevilling the nation, especially the South West, remained a collective effort of all residents, including the local security outfits in collaboration with government and other security agencies, lamenting that some unscrupulous elements were taking advantage of the bandits’ invasion to unleash terror on the people.
Earlier, Mujota had reported the fracas that broke out in the Saje area of her constituency, where some students were alleged to have used dangerous weapons in a rivalry clash among students in the area, a situation that had been generating fears among the residents.
On his part, Hon. Elemide intimated the Assembly on the unlawful invasion of Olokemeji- Olowo, a boundary village between Ogun and Oyo State by some herdsmen, who allegedly killed a resident while raising an alarm on their presence near a forest reserve.
