The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Chief Sunday Dare, has warned that nothing untoward must happen to former Leader of the House of Representatives, Honourable Mulikat Adeola Akande, who raised an alarm over threats to her life.
Dare, the new Agbaakin of Ogbomosoland, said he felt disturbed by the distress call by Honourable Akande who he described as a quiet and peace loving politician with no history of frivolities or grandstanding that would be seeking undue attention or cry wolf in the absence of none.
The Minister, in a statement he personally signed, tasked the Governor of Oyo State, Engineer Seyi Makinde as the Chief Security Officer of the state and Leader of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) the party Honorable Akande belongs to, to take the matter with all seriousness and ensure all round protection for the former House of Representatives leader forthwith.
Chief Dare also called on all the federal security agencies to rise to the occasion and see that her life is not in danger in anyway.
“This is beyond politics. It is about the security of life and right to life. She is an illustrious daughter of Oyo State and somebody that had served Nigeria at the peak of governance. An alarm of threat to life by such person or any other Nigerian for that matter deserves to be taken with the utmost earnestness.
“I charge my brother, the Governor of our state, Engineer Seyi Makinde who is also the leader of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mulikat Akande’s party to earnestly ensure that all round protection is provided for her forthwith and guarantee that nothing untoward happens to her.
“I also call on federal and state security agencies to ensure that her life is not in danger in anyway”.
