Following the killing of a man early Monday morning at Agogo Igbala along the Lagos-Badagry Expressway by herdsmen, prominent Badagrians expressed sadness over the incident.
Setonji David, a lawmaker representing Badagry Constituency 1 at the Lagos State House of Assembly while sympathising with the deceased family faulted the population of the people against the police stating that there are not enough policemen to secure the people and affirmed that the Open Grazing law signed in Lagos State will be effected.
He also reiterated that the call for state policing needs to be attended to by the Federal Government as a matter of urgency and noted that he has also taken the necessary steps immediately he was informed by reaching out to the appropriate security officers.
A former Representative of the Badagry Constituency 1 and Commissioner IV, Hon. Hodewu Suru Avoseh, also confirmed that immediately he got the information, he alerted the security agents including the SSS on the matter.
Avoseh noted that he should rather be proactive than talk on matters as this magnitude especially when it’s within his axis.
The Onimeke of Imeke Kingdom, Oba Abraham Olatunde Ogabi (JP) on his part faulted the herdsmen for leaving their domain to graze on the Expressway and promised that the matters on the Open Grazing Law will still be raised in the Council of Obas in the State.
Ọba Ogabi affirmed that the matter will not be swept under the carpet but will be debated at the council because it is of no help when there is a law yet it cannot be implemented to the letters.
Reports from the scene has it that the man killed was the conductor of the LT Bus named Kamarudeen while the Police Command via the Spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, said it was someone within the scene.
