the attackers caught the police unaware.
The Yoruba generalissimo, while calling for step up in the security system, urged the police authorities to build lasting security synergy with the local security operatives, saying such would help in addressing security challenges across the region.
He expressed concern at the protracted attacks on neighbouring towns and communities in Oke Ogun, wondering how the area has become prone to attacks.
“The recent attack is a strong signal that the South-West has become very vulnerable to perennial attacks.
“While this attack is unfortunate, it is very important for the Nigerian police to come up with a new approach that could help in combating the security scourge.
“I think there is need for the police authorities to build lasting security synergy with the local security operatives. Such approach would help in addressing security challenges across the region,” he said.
Meanwhile, the state commissioner of police, Adebowale Williams, and his men have visited the scene of the attack to get a first hand report of the attack
