The Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has been called upon to as a matter of fact fish out all those involved in the crisis at Shasha Area of Ibadan and prosecute them according to the laws of the land to serve as a deterrent to others who want to do the same thing.
The call was made by the Convener of Northern Youth consultative initiative (NYCI), Amb Bappare Mohammed, who spoke to selected Journalists on Sunday saying that, “The attack on innocent Hausa men earlier on Saturday at Shasha community of Oyo State stand condemned by all men of good conscience and conviction.”
Bappare Mohammed stated that: “It should be noted that on several fora, the leadership of the Northern Youth Consultative Initiative has been calling for sincere unity of Nigerians irrespective of ethnic or religious affiliation.”
He, however, lamented that: “But calls of such manner has conspicuously been hindered from thriving, by merchants of violence that are hellbent on fanning the embers of crisis and disunity for their selfish gains.”
The NYCI added that “Attack of such magnitude will eminently cause reprisal crisis across the country, which shall bring nothing but bloodbaths across the country.
“Therefore, we urge His Excellency Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State and other governors bedevilled with serious security threats to do everything possible by prosecuting culprits and sponsors of these unfortunate incidents,” he appealed.
Bappare Mohammed concluded that “Finally, we implore Northern youths to remain calm and law-abiding by not taking laws into our hands. Nigeria is ours we have no any other place on earth more than our dear country.”
He then asserted that It is the constitutional rights of every Nigerian to live in any state within the country as no one has the constitutional rights to send anybody out from any state.
