“The stakeholders’ meeting is a confidence building engagement and conflict management mechanism adopted by the state government to ensure that people of diverse ethnic backgrounds live together in peace and harmony.

“All stakeholders are expected to lay their grievances, if any, and for solutions to the orgy of bloodletting among people, who had a template for conflict management and peaceful coexistence for ages,” he said.

The state will hand over some security vehicles and motorcycles to the special task force set up for Yewaland and they will commence patrol today (Tuesday).

He said, “The delegation I sent told me what they saw. They said a lot of things happened and as they were giving the report of what they saw, we heard that another attack happened.

“I called a security meeting this morning. And before yesterday, I had set up a task force and bought new vehicles and motorcycles for Yewaland security.

“The task force consists of the police, soldiers, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and hunters to help us in terms of security in your area.

“Tomorrow by God’s grace, all the new vehicles and motorcycles will be released. The task force will be stationed here; they will not only patrol your areas and go back to Abeokuta,” Somorin added.
