Governor Dapo Abiodun has denied seeking Igboho’s help in the fight against insecurity in the state.
Abiodun, in a statement by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Waheed Odusile, said he didn’t enlist Igboho to combat crime in the state.
The governor was silent on the Igboho’s Monday visit, but denied earlier report credited to the Special Adviser on Public Communication, Remmy Hazzan, on welcoming the Yoruba activist to the state.
“At all times, the Government will ensure that all security agencies and indeed all stakeholders operate within the ambit of the law and will neither welcome nor endorse any initiative that amounts to self-help or is outside the contemplation of the constitution, which is the grundnorm binding on all governments and persons in the country,” the governor said.
He added that the government would continue to attract and welcome all those with legitimate reasons to live, work and even play in the State, saying that “it is home to all Nigerians and foreigners alike.”
He, however, advised the residents to continue to go about their normal businesses.
