Bandits Attack On Gov. Akeredolu: Aide Confirms Bandits Were Not Aware It Was Governor’s Convoy


By Paul Ukpabio

The collision between the convoy of the Executive Governor of Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu along Akure-Ibadan expressway, some days ago, has continued to elicit great concern among Nigerian citizens with some notable leaders in the society, condemning the affront of such bandits to attack a governor’s convoy or entourage: With some leaders even calling for state police immediately in the country.

But throwing more light into the matter for better clarifications, an aide to the governor, told us that, the bandits were not exactly waiting at the spot on the road to attack the governor’s convoy, “they were not aware that it was the governor’s convoy until the security personnel in the governor’s convoy opened fire on them,” he said, but confirms that, “the road has become a dreaded road to travel.”

After a series of abductions on this particular road, the Akure-Ibadan expressway has thus remained a notorious road to travel in recent times and this was even confirmed by the Governor after the incident with the bandits. “We, as governor, will do something about the issue,” said Governor Akeredolu.

The incident according to some Yoruba leaders, is a wake-up call to the governors to act.
