I don’t nurse any bitterness against Makinde – Alaafin












The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, says he is “not nursing any bitterness” against Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State over the relocation of the Mobile Police Squadron 72, from Oyo town to Ago-Are in Oke-Ogun area of the state.




Oba Adeyemi stated this when he received Makinde who paid him courtesy visit in his palace on Wednesday in Oyo town.














He said “the location of the Mobile Command would not create disaffection between him and the governor”.




The first-class traditional ruler said he welcomed the location of the Mobile base in Ago-Are, stressing that he would have written a protest letter or visited the governor if he had any grouse against him over the squadron base location.














The Alaafin said Oyo town had security challenges particularly hoodlums who are terrorising the town and urged the governor to help address it.




Oba Adeyemi assured the governor of his full support in all the administration’s programmes and policies that would be beneficial to the masses.














On the controversy surrounding the location of the Mobile Police squadron 72 at Ago-Are, the governor said “there was never a time the squadron was located in Oyo town”.




He said the request made to the Inspector General of Police in September 2019, over the establishment of the squadron was for Oke-Ogun area and not in Oyo town.
