The issue of insecurity along Akure Owo road is far from over, information reaching our desk confirmed that serious arm robbery attack occoured between the hour of 6pm and 7pm today.
One of the victim who was lucky to escape unhurt said “We just escaped armed robbery some 30mins ago. This happened between Ogbese and Uso; some two mins drive from Ogbese”.
A senior lecturer of the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic who phoned Ebony Herald said that this is an indication that the atmosphere of insecurity still pervades the Owo-Akure road.
According to a comment on Asup platform posted few minutes ago by Dr Mrs Ayodele of Department of Languages, Rugipo
The soldiers’ fire brigade approach is not the solution. Provision should be made for soldiers to be constant on the notorious road.
She suggested further that the tick bushes at the right and left sides should be cleared for about 100 meters from the main road.
These measures will checkmate the boldness of the criminals who are so desperate to make money at all costs
According to Mr Razak Suberu “We were practically face to face with death. Some people were killed. We had a very narrow escape”. In fact, people with gun shot wound are just being brought to FMC Owo now.
