Following the spate of insecurity coupled with ethnicity crisis in some parts of Oyo state, the Soun of Ogbomoso, His Royal Majesty, Oba
Oladunni Oyewumi Ajagungbade III, has called for peaceful co-existence among various tribes in the state and country as a whole.

According to a statement on Wednesday by the Secretary to HRM, Soun of Ogbomosoland, Toyin Ajamu, the first class monarch stated that, “I wish to call on Nigerian to strive to live in peace at all times. A lot of us have lived in different parts of the country for years making living and interacting peacefully with the host communities.

“As a traditional ruler who had lived in Jos, Plateau State for over 30 years before ascending the throne of my forehead in 1973, I appreciate the need for peaceful coexistence. Our security challenge may appear daunting but they are not insurmountable. We should all cooperate with each other to find lasting solutions to them.

“May I admonish governments at all levels to re-double their efforts in stemming the tide of insecurity and restoring peace in the country at large.

“Furthermore, I want to appeal to the Nigerian media to exercise caution in disseminating information in order to ensure peaceful co-existence in the country.

“Nigerians are very much interconnected and interrelated socially, politically and economically, so much so that no part of the country must be a no-go area to any Nigerian citizen”.
