An NGO — Federation of Informal Workers Organisation of Nigeria (FIWON) — in Osun has called on security agencies to check what it called the excesses of politicians in the state.

FIWON noted that such excesses were capable of destabilising the state.

Mr Olayinka Ibrahim, the State Coordinator ofFIWON, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Osogbo on Friday the recent activities of some politicians in Osun had been a source of concern to the people.

He urged security agencies to rise up to the task of protecting lives and property and also creating peaceful environment to the residents.

“Security agencies must be on alert to protect lives and property and also to ensure that peace reigns supreme in the state,’’ Ibrahim said.

“The tension in the state capital on July 23 at Ideal Nestle Hotel created fear in many people.

“The police and other security agencies in the state should monitor thoroughly the activities of some politicians.’’

Ibrahim, however, urged politicians in the state to use civilised and constitutional means to present their grievances to the authorities.
