Chairman, Ido local government area, Mr Sheriff Adeojo, has urged residents of Araromi Idowu to remain calm and not take laws into their hands.
Adeojo made this call while addressing aggrieved members of the community who led a protest to the Ido Police Station over the kidnap of their community head, Baale Tafa Apanpa.
Apanpa had been abducted by gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen, on Tuesday.
Addressing the distraught residents, Adeojo said he had opened discussions with all relevant security agencies in the state, to ensure that Baale Apapan and his wife are rescued from their abductors within a short time frame.
The Chairman who had earlier spoken with three suspects who were apprehended by operatives of the Vigilante Group (HVGN) and handed over to the police, appealed to leaders and members of the community to remain calm as necessary machinery have been put in place to make sure the abducted Baale and his wife are rescued and the abductors brought to book.
Noting that security was everybody’s business, Adeojo also enjoined residents of Ido local government, youths and community leaders to be vigilant and speak up whenever they observe strange faces around their neighbourhood.
