The Speaker of the House, Mr. Michael Adeyemo said he had received several phone calls and text messages on security situation in the ancient town.

Another lawmaker, Mrs. Bimbo Olawunmi Oladeji who represents Ogbomoso North, brought the matter before the House and called on the legislators to do something urgent about the security situation in Ogbomoso.

She said:

“There is general insecurity in Ogbomoso. In recent times,there have been cases of armed robbery attacks and harassment of LAUTECH students. I will urge the house to look into the issue.”
