Governor Ajimobi reacts to killing of teenage girl in Oyo, blames cult war

Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State on Saturday condemned the resurgence of the cult war in Idi-Oro and Ayeye areas of Ibadan North West Local Government Area which claimed the life of a teenage girl on Saturday.

A statement by his Special Adviser on Communication, Bolaji Tunji, said the governor was pained by the disturbing news, especially coming on the heels of the conduct of the state’s first local government election in 11 years.

The governor condoled with the family of the victim and vowed to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice.

Ajimobi said: “From the intelligence reports at my disposal, the perpetrators of this heinous and condemnable crime were the recalcitrant cultists engaging in supremacy battle in Idi Oro and Ayeye areas of Ibadan who are yet to embrace our peace initiative.

“That they chose to disturb the peace of the neighbourhood on the day Oyo had a very peaceful LG election across the state is regrettable.

“I was told that elections took place successfully in the polling booth closest to the scene of the incident without any hitch before the cultists struck.

“I want to use this opportunity to condole with the family of the victim for the irredeemable loss. Let me again warn that those bent on scuttling the peace that we have enthroned across the state in the last seven years will live to regret their action.
