Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde has come out to say that anyone igniting ethnic tension in the state should be treated as a criminal.

He recently revealed this on Friday when Onadeko paid him a courtesy visit at the Governor’s Office, Agodi, Secretariat, Ibadan.

According to him, any attempt to fuel security tension, under any guise that would threaten the corporate vision of Nigeria, would not be tolerated by his government.

He added that his government is not against any ethnic group, and he is determined to flush out criminal elements anywhere in the state.

His words, “For people stoking ethnic tension, they are criminals and once you get them they should be arrested and treated like common criminals.”

“For this administration, the major pillar for us is secure because we know that all the good things we want to do economically won’t be possible in an atmosphere of chaos and insecurity.

“So, when people say things that are not lawful and within the spirit of Nigeria’s constitution, it is not acceptable here.”

“And they cannot hide under being people protecting Yoruba interest to perpetuate chaos in the state.”
