Ogun Assembly Tasks Police Commissioner To Fish Out Killer Of SS1 Student In Ipokia

Ogun State House of Assembly has condemned the alleged gruesome murder of an SSS1 female student in Ipokia Local Government by an unidentified policeman, 
tasking the authorities of the State Police Command to fish out the culprit 

The Speaker of the house, Right Honourable Olakunle Oluomo who made the call while responding to the submission of a member representing Ipokia/ Idiroko State Constituency, Hon. Adebisi Oyedele, who reported the incident at the plenary on Tuesday in Abeokuta, called on the police authorities to continue to train its officers on decorum, especially as it relates to the rule of engagement in the use of firearms.

A member representing Remo North State Constituency, Hon. Dickson Awolaja, however lauded the efforts of the State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alamutu for fortifying security around the campus of the Gateway ICT Polytechnic, Saapade, where some students and residents were robbed and attacked recently, calling for more security networks to protect the residents.

The Assembly had earlier extolled the virtues of the late industrialist, Chief Chris Ogunbajo, describing him as an illustrious son of the State and the nation, while commiserating with the family over his demise in response to the presentation of a member representing Ijebu North-East, Hon. Oluseun Adesanya.

Meanwhile a bill seeking the integration and development of the rural and semi-urban areas in Ogun State, scaled through a second reading on the floor of the State House of Assembly, during the plenary 

Opening debate on the bill titled: H.B. NO. 010/ OG/ 2023- Ogun State Rural and Semi-Urban Integration and Development bill, 2023, during its second reading stage, the sponsor, Hon. Babatunde Tella, noted that it was meant to focus on grassroots development, stem rural-urban migration, boost agriculture and develop the rural communities and the inhabitants.

Hon. Tella explained that qualitative development required a bottom-up approach, with rural areas and semi-urban as a focus while canvassing for the allocation of 40 percent of resources meant for infrastructural development to be channeled to the development of rural areas in the State.

Corroborating the Sponsor, other lawmakers including Speaker Olakunle Oluomo, Minority Leader Lukman Adeleye, Honourables Adebisi Oyedele, Lawal Adekunle, Oluseun Adesanya, Adegoke Adeyanju and Folawewo Salami, stated that the bill was targeted towards promoting even development in all parts of the State, as rural communities constituted over 90 percent part of the State.

They posited that rural communities in the State required more government presence to advance development, boost food production and create more employment opportunities.

In another development, the Speaker has appealed to the relevant National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) through the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) to help provide relief materials to the victims of the rainstorm that wreaked havoc recently in Ijebu-East State Constituency in response to the presentation of a member representing the area, Hon. Waliu Owode, who lamented that the incident affected over 500 buildings in the Constituency.
