The Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has expressed concern with the level of insecurity posed by the activities of rival cult groups to the residents of Sagamu.
The governor stated this while speaking at the 29th Sagamu Day celebration held at the Methodist Secondary School, Ijoku, Sagamu on Saturday.
The former state governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, is from the town.
He said, “The frequent violent clashes between members of rival cult gangs in this area have continued to create fears in the minds of the residents of the town. It has become imperative that measures are taken to check the activities of the cult groups in this area.”
Amosun added that his administration would continue to collaborate with security agencies to ensure that Sagamu town was no longer a haven for people with criminal tendencies.
He added that aside from infrastructural development, a clean
and serene environment, security of lives and property was an essential ingredient that would encourage the development of any state.
