Kidnapping: Fadahunsi Challenge Yoruba Rulers
Senator-elect for Osun East Senatorial District, Prince Francis Adenigba Fadahunsi, has described the latest security challenge in the south west region as precarious and unacceptable, calling on Yoruba leaders and traditional rulers to rise up to the challenge.
Fadahunsi said, “The increase in the rate of kidnapping and other heinous activities of cattle rustlers in the south west could spark protest if the federal governments through the security agencies remains reluctant in addressing it with every sense of patriotism and zeal.
“It is a known knowledge that the region is surrounded by herdsmen, who are seen with sophisticated weapons migrating from one place to another destroying farms and terrorizing the people from village to village.
“The Akure- Ilesa- Ife- Ibadan express way has become a dangerous path and internal roads in Oriiade and obokun local governments have become another den of criminals.”
Fadahunsi, who recalled how a university lecturer was forced to pay over 5million Naira to regain his freedom recently by the Fulani herdsmen that abducted him, also added that a lawyer was also kidnapped recently and made to cough out ransom by his abductors.
“The bandits seem to be enjoying the oppressive lifestyle, because the security agencies seem to be failing or uncommitted to securing the lives of the people.
The Senator elect also observed that the security agents seem treating the issue of kidnapping in the region with kid gloves, while people suffer inhuman treatment from the bandits and family members are not only left to suffer psychology trauma as they  run around looking for the ransom demanded by the criminals.
Fadahunsi also called on the traditional rulers in the region to as a matter of urgency call a security meeting of the traditional council to address the security situation.
