Governor Adeleke Condemns Repatriation of Osun Indigenes From Lagos


May 6, 2024

Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke has condemned the alleged repatriation of Osun indigenes from Lagos State, describing it as a shocking and unacceptable act. Hundreds of youths were reportedly rounded up in Lagos and dropped off in various locations in Ilesa, Osun State, over the weekend.

According to eyewitnesses, several luxury buses were seen dropping off the youths at various points in Ilesa, including the Ilesa-Akure Express junction, Breweries, Ilesa-Ibodi-Iginla to Ife Express junction, Osun Ankara Express junction, Imelu Express junction, and Iperindo Express junction.

Governor Adeleke has spoken with his Lagos State counterpart, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who denied authorizing the action and promised an immediate investigation. Osun State has set up a team to investigate the incident and track the affected youths.

Governor Adeleke has urged residents to remain calm while the security agencies conduct surveillance and gather facts. He has also directed the state’s security agencies to monitor the situation and ensure the safety of the affected individuals.

“This incident is unacceptable and we will get to the bottom of it,” Governor Adeleke said. “We will work with the Lagos State government to ensure that those responsible are held accountable and that our citizens are protected.”

This incident has raised concerns about the treatment of citizens and the need for greater cooperation and understanding between states. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as more information becomes available.
