Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State has expressed concern about potential attacks on schools and rural farm communities in the area.

The governor stated that there are intelligence reports suggesting a planned mobilization of criminal groups for attacks on rural areas.

Adeleke mentioned that the attackers intend to disrupt farming activities by carrying out kidnappings and assaults on rural farm settlements.

In a statement released by his spokesperson, Malam Olawale Rasheed, Governor Adeleke revealed that schools are at risk of abductions and attacks.

To address these security issues, Adeleke announced that a meeting of the state security council had been called.

He also provided initial instructions to school authorities to improve the safety of students and pupils.

“The Ministry of Education and all educational agencies have been ordered to review safety measures in Osun schools in line with the safe school initiative.

“In specific terms, school principals and heads are expected to clear overgrown weeds in school environments and ensure close liaison with the Parents and Teachers Association to secure their school environments,” he said.

He stated that the state is peaceful and will not be affected by any efforts to disrupt the peace and harmony among its people.

“No stone will be left unturned to disrupt plans of enemies of progress to plunge the state into crisis.

“I urge members of the public to inform security agencies of any unusual movements or activities across the state,” he added.
