Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun yesterday raised the alarm that militants are returning to the state.

Amosun said the militants were not only “regrouping” in boundary communities within the state but also approaching Ijebu-Ode and Ogere – both in Ogun East Senatorial District.The governor spoke when the General Officer Commanding (GOC), 81 Division, Maj-Gen Babtunde Oyefolu, visited his Oke-Mosan office in Abeokuta, the state capital.

He noted that before the militants were routed, following military’s air and land assaults on their dens in riverine parts of the state, they had sacked various communities, destroyed properties and displaced people.

Amosun hailed the military for its efforts at degrading Boko Haram in the Northeast.

“Everybody would agree that we are winning the war, people are returning home, areas that were under the control of Boko Haram are now free and people are going back home. So, huge commendation for the military.

“When we bring it home here, not too long ago, we had these issues with these criminals. I don’t call them militants, they are just criminals, who took over all our riverine areas, we ran to Mr President and they were sent away.

“What we are hearing is that they are now regrouping, they have moved from where they were sent away from, they are now moving very close to Ijebu Ode towards Ogere.

“Before now, they were in Arepo, Sagamu, Ikorodu but what they are now doing is regrouping and taking hostages around boundary areas.

“It is a very good avenue for me to inform you but we would be ready for them and it is good that I am putting you on notice,” Amosun said.
General Oyefolu lauded the government for supporting the Army, adding that security should be the business of everyone.’

He appealed to the governor to extend his empowerment programmes to officers in the state.
