Oyo Assembly condemns Soka killings

The Oyo State House of  Assembly on Tuesday condemned the suspected  killings  at Soka in Oluyole Local Government Area.

The lawmakers condemned the act at  plenary presided over by  Speaker  Monsurat Sunmonu.

The News Agency of   Nigeria recalls that no fewer than 20 decomposed bodies and some emaciated captives were found in an  apartment in Soka on Saturday.

Honourable Olusegun Olaleye, who drew the attention of the House to the incident, said that it  should be addressed and  perpetrators brought to book.

“I want to say that the incident at Soka was callous, malicious and wicked. I think the development should be condemned by all civilised persons,” he said.

He called on Governor Abiola Ajimobi,  who visited the scene of the incident  on Monday,  to  take over the site for developmental purposes.

The House also adopted  a  motion calling on the executive to take appropriate measures to stop the spread  of  malaria in the state.

Honourable Fatai Salami, who moved the motion, said that there was the need to halt the scourge  in view of its health implications..

“I want the issue of malaria to be controlled or if possible to be eradicated in Oyo State,” he said.

He cited a  Federal Ministry of Health  research finding which said  60 per cent of out-patient visits to health institutions were for treatment of malaria.

The lawmakers  also called for the establishment of  a Malaria Control Fund to combat  the disease.
