Residents urge Oyebanji to end kidnapping in Ekiti

Residents of Otun-Ekiti, in Moba Local Government Area (LGA) have come out in unison today 6th of January 2023, to appealed to the Ekiti State Governor, Mr Biodun Oyebanji, to put an end to kidnapping in the town and its neighbouring communities.


A cross section of the residents of the community, who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Otun-Ekiti, said that many of them lost valuable things and persons in 2022 as a result of insecurity.

They lamented that in spite of the efforts of the Nigerian police to arrest the perpetrators, many of them were unable to visit their farms alone or travel in the evening as they normally do.

One of the residents, Mr Bode Omole, a farmer, appealed to the state Gov. Oyebanji, to find a lasting solution to the insecurity such as kidnapping, ritual killing among other crimes in the area.


Omole explained that some of his colleagues have abandoned their farms because of the fear of being kidnapped.

“I want to appeal to Oyebanji to end insecurity such as kidnappings, stealing and killing in our community in the new year. 2022 was a very challenging year for us in Otun-Ekiti, I and my friends can no longer visit our farms or travel in the evening or early in the morning.

“It is until all the perpetrators of this crime are arrested that peace can be restored and the farmers will be able to return to their farms with peace of mind,” he said.
