Criminals are after my life, Ogun State Governor reveals


The Governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun has revealed that criminals are threatening to come after him because he is making life unbearable for them.

He disclosed this while speaking on Wednesday, February 2 at “Ogun and Oyo Joint Security Meeting”, a bilateral session organised by Ogun and Oyo State Governments to finding solutions to the insecurity challenges in their states.
Abiodun stated that the anti-crime battle of his government has made him a target.

The Governor who claimed that criminals have decided to come after him “because he is making life unbearable for them”, dared them by saying “I am waiting for them.”

He said;

“After we launched our OP-MESA last week, I understand that they have been working extremely hard, in fact, what I hear is that those criminals are now saying that Dapo Abiodun is making life unbearable for them and that they are going after me, well, let me assure you that I will continue to make life intolerable and unbearable for you and I’m waiting for you.”

Abiodun said that kidnappings and other crimes are rampant at the border communities of the two states, hence, the bilateral agreement.

The Governor also said criminals have been feeling the heat of the anti-crime battles in the state following the recent relaunch of the security outfit OP-MESA.

In his words:

“I will continue to make life intolerable for them (criminals) and I will continue to do it.”

Governor Seyi Makinde on his own part said the joint security meeting “is the right thing to do and it is absolutely important we do it.”

Makinde declared that he and Abiodun had defied political party differences and pursued a common goal of fighting insecurity in their states.
