BY ETOP EKANEM
LAGOS — The Oba of Ayobo town in Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos State, Oba Arole Idowu Kadunmise, has called on landlords in his domain to be vigilant and mindful of their tenant’s activities as they would henceforth forfeit their houses if any of their tenants was caught in terror act.

The royal father gave this warning when the Oba-in-Council hosted the Community Development Committees, CDCs and Community Development Association, CDAs, stakeholders, Hausa community, other ethnic nationalities and religious leaders on the issue of security in the community.

The monarch who disclosed that the Oba-in-Council had already taken some steps at upgrading security in the community, said: “We have taken precautionary measures by registering all Hausas in our community, and mechanism has been put in place to check further influx of strange Hausas into the community. Landlords have also been instructed to ensure that their tenants are well investigated with their pictures and places of work properly documented.”

The Chairman, Oba-in-Council of the town, the Atunluse of Ayoboland, Chief Sunday Akpan, said the terrorists were actually from NigerRepublic and that the Hausa community too needed to ensure that the impostors are fished out to avoid unnecessary bloodshed in the state.

In his remark, representative of the Divisional Police Officer of Ipaja Divisional Police Headquarters, ASP Sunny Ejenkpokpo, said men and officers of the division were more than ready to ensure adequate security in the community and solicited the cooperation of the residents because, according to him, “security is a communal effort.”
