Osun Govt. investigates youths deportation from Lagos

The Osun State Government has commenced investigation on the alleged deportation of young indigenes from Lagos state.

It’s decision to investigate the deportation was taken after reports emanated that the Lagos government implemented the deportation of Osun indigenes from the state.

As gathered, the development infuriated the Governor, Ademola Adeleke, who directed an immediate investigation into the alleged deportation case.

The report claimed that police officers had picked up Osun indigenes from various parts of Ajah, TBS and Lagos Island.

In a statement issued on Monday, the governor’s spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, disclosed THAT Adeleke expressed shock over the incident, adding that the state has set up an investigative team and the case was confirmed.

“The report was confirmed by an investigation team set up to confirm the veracity of the story by the Osun state government,” the statement reads.

“The state team reported that eyewitness accounts confirmed the dropping of the youths in several luxurious buses by a team suspected to be from Lagos State.

“The state’s report showed that the youths were systematically dropped at Ilesa-Akure express junction, Breweries; Ilesa – Ibodi – Iginla to Ife express junction, Osun Ankara express junction, Imelu express junction and Iperindo express junction.”

The governor said he has engaged his Lagos State counterpart, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who also expressed shock over the development and promised to take urgent action.

“I spoke with my brother, governor Sanwo-Olu on the matter. He too was surprised and he denied ever authorising any such action,” the governor said.

“Governor Sanwo-Olu has promised immediate investigation to unravel the facts of the situation. The Lagos team will update us as quickly as possible.

“I am subsequently directing our security agencies in Osun to mount surveillance in and around Ilesa to track the deported youths and their destinations.

“I will update our people on this development. I urge residents to be calm while the security agencies carry out surveillance.”
