It is no longer news that there was great upheaval in our Community on Tuesday, 20 October, 2020 and right now we are still experiencing a spill-over from different quarters, all geared towards causing pandemonium in Ajeromi-Ifelodun LGA.
The incessant lootings, shootings and fighting have resulted into casualties being recorded; those injured are currently in various hospitals receiving treatments, and some handful of deaths were also reported.
We are not happy by this development as measures have been put in place to take care of the bills of those in hospitals as a result of the crisis while also advising residents to be peaceful and stay at home.
Hon. Fatai Adekunle Ayoola, Executive Chairman, Ajeromi-Ifelodun LGA and his entire Management Team, sympathizes with the families of victims who lost their lives or got injured on black Tuesday and the following days.
We have thus setup an Emergency Committee to investigate the incident of Tuesday and to report accurate details of fatalities involved while we continue to save the lives of those in the hospitals.
It should worth our while to know that Ajeromi-Ifelodun Local Government, the Police and other Law enforcement agencies have good relationship towards security issues of the community and that is maintaining law and order.
We would like to state unequivocally that no political office holder or leader in the community is responsible for the crisis in Ajeromi-Ifelodun.
We thus frown at the destruction and burning of public or private properties in the community, while also sympathizing with the Management of First Bank of Nigeria PLC for their loss.
Anybody sent to burn or destroy properties belonging to the public or private organizations will meet the wrath of God as well as the law and such a person will be apprehended soon.
We advise residents to be calm and shun every act capable of dividing us as a people.
CPS, Ajeromi-Ifelodun LGA
