Makinda reimburses the owners of the killed cows for the injured feet.
Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinda ordered the state health ministry to pay medical bills for people who were injured during the shooting in the alafar community on the Ologuneru / Apata axis in Ibadan on Saturday.
Reports said alleged militants entered the area early Saturday morning and killed several cows while others were injured.
State Police Command, through the Eleyele County Police Officer, immediately arrived on the scene and announced that their agents were tracking down criminals while the investigation continued.
A statement from the Oyo State Police Department on Saturday also indicated that the incident in the Alafar community has nothing to do with the Yoruba / Hausa Fulani clash, adding that relative peace has been restored in the area.
A government delegation led by the governor’s executive assistant for security, CP Sunday Odukoya (rtd), visited the area and discovered that alleged militants had invaded the area early Saturday morning and shot dead animals.
Odukoya said Sunday that when the incident was reported to Governor Makinda, he immediately ordered the Ministry of Health to take care of the victims, and the government would compensate owners for the killed cows.
“His Excellency Governor Seiyi Makinda, upon receiving the incident report, immediately dispatched a team that worked with me to investigate the situation.
“Since then, we have informed His Excellency and he also ordered that the cost of medical care for the wounded be fully transferred to the government,” said Odukoya.
The statement also indicated that the state government has offered compensation to livestock owners, while the traditional ruler and regional leaders are working with security agencies to sort out the situation.
