Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, has sought forgiveness from the Iganga people over the recent killings Fulani herdsmen invaded the town and caused.
Makinde visited the town two days after the incident and interacted with the people of the two as he told them to hold him accountable for what happened.
In his words: “Once again, I beg of you; give us the opportunity to come back and rebuild things and put a more solid architecture such that you will be able to go to farms and do whatever you want to do without fear.
“But I should be held accountable. I am responsible for this and will do everything within my power to make sure that it will not happen again.”
“I have told your chairman that all the vigilantes and security guards, the government will be responsible for them. This is your government, please give me the opportunity to do the needful so that a meeting like this would not come up again.
“I urge you to give me that chance to make the issue of insecurity here become a thing of the past. Don’t take laws into your hands. We have identified where there are hitches. We are supposed to be going to our farms by now because of the favourable weather. But hold me accountable, I have nowhere to go.
“I believe there are some certain things we put in place, which we think would work but unfortunately, they did not work. Please, give me some time, everything will be resolved.”
