Governor Seyi Makinde has blamed the rising insecurity in Oyo on the population increase in the state.

The governor said this on Monday at the inauguration of the Board of the Oyo State Security Network Agency, codenamed Amotekun. where he stated that the influx of more people and businesses to the state could be blamed for the security issues in the state.

The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Taiwo Adisa, who said this in a statement on Monday promised that Makinde’s government will continue to give the security of lives and property of the people the required attention.

The statement read, “We know that because of the policies of this administration, a lot of people are coming into Oyo State, and when you have more and more people coming in, it will come with its own set of challenges and with opportunities as well.

 “In the days ahead, we will also let the people of Oyo State know the things we are doing as far as security is concerned. And when they see security operatives all around, they must give them total support.

 “Yes, I can go to Igangan and take responsibility for some of these activities but security is our collective responsibility. It is not just for the government or governor alone. So, everybody needs to come on board and play their own part.”

Makinde hailed Amotekun despite facing numerous challenges which he said made them operate in a disadvantaged position compared with criminals.
