Following the crisis rocking the Ibarapa axis of Oyo State, the State government delegation will carry out an on-the-spot assessment of the situation at Igangan and parts of Ibarapa axis, on Sunday

The state police commissioner, Mrs. Onadeko would lead the police delegation, which would be joined by officers and men of the police tactical team deployed from Abuja.

The team will meet stakeholders and traditional rulers, assess the extent of damage, engage with youths, and calm frayed nerves.

While it was not very clear (as at press time) who would lead the government team, sources said Governor Makinde had already constituted a high-powered delegation made up of senior officials.

A full report of the Ibarapa situation will be made public by the government, and the police after the assessment tour, the source said, adding that the government team has been mandated to dissuade the stakeholders from unduly politicising the situation at hand, or fuelling ethnic tension, while Yoruba elders are wading in to ensure peace in the region and align positions on the way forward
