This is coming after Sunday Ighoho had issued a seven-day ultimatum to Fulanis in Igangan in Ibarapa East local government to vacate over alleged kidnapping and banditry.

But Governor Makinde countered the order in a state broadcast on Friday, declaring nobody has the right to evict anybody from any parts of Oyo State.

The governor also asked the new Commissioner of Police in Oyo, CP Ngozi Onadeko, to arrest and treat those causing ethnic tension in the state as criminals.

Makinde, who stated when Onadeko paid him a courtesy visit at the Governor’s Office, said that attempt to fuel security tension under any guise that would threaten the corporate vision of Nigeria would not be tolerated by his administration.

He said that his government was not against any ethic group, but was determined to flushing out criminal elements anywhere in the state.

Governor Makinde stressed that the Hausa/Fulani ethnic group residing in the state was not his government’s target, but hoodlums, bandits, irrespective of their tribes and religion.

“For people stoking ethnic tension, they are criminals and once you get them they should be arrested and treated like common criminals.

“For this administration, the major pillar for us is secure because we know that all the good things we want to do economically won’t be possible in an atmosphere of chaos and insecurity.

“So, when people say things that are not lawful and within the spirit of Nigeria’s constitution, it is not acceptable here.

“And they cannot hide under being people protecting Yoruba interest to perpetuate chaos in the state,” he said.

Makinde reiterated that security remained one of the pillars of his administration, noting that all the good policies of his administration could not be actualised in an atmosphere of chaos and insecurity.

He promised to give maximum support to the Nigerian Police and other security agencies to ensure the safety of lives, property and economic prosperity of the state.

Makinde called for more synergy between the police and the Western Nigeria Security Network, code-named Amotekun. He noted that those who demonised Amotekun were the ones issuing an ultimatum to certain ethnic nationalities to vacate the state.

KanyiDaily recalls that Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu had also given herdsmen seven days ultimatum to vacate all forest reserves due to the high rate of criminality in the state.
