The Aare Ona Kankanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, has condemned the attack on the Oyo State correctional facility.

Adams noted that the attack on the prison exposed the vulnerability of the correctional facility and the security agencies guarding it.

SaharaReporters had earlier today reported that the Abolongo facility in Oyo town was attacked by the gunmen on Friday evening.

The gunmen set all the prisoners at the facility free during the attack.

The attackers had stormed the facility at about 10pm, using grenades to gain access and set prisoners free.

Reacting, Adams, in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Kehinde Aderemi, said the invasion of Oyo town prison by bandits has exposed the poor security situation in the country.

According to him, the invasion was a national embarrassment, adding that Oyo State and the entire South-west has never experienced such an attack in a very long time.

The candidate of the Young Progressives Party for the November 6 Governorship Election in Anambra State, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, on Saturday, expressed optimism that he would be declared winner of the poll.

Ubah stated this in Abuja during an interview with journalists shortly after he was awarded Bachelor of Law degree at the Baze University.

The Senator who is currently representing Anambra South Senatorial District at the National Assembly, said the knowledge he acquired as a law graduate would assist him to offer quality governance as the state’s helmsman.

He said he was able to combine his academic works and legislative activities because he set his agenda and always ensure that his priorities were always right.

He described as propaganda and cheap politics, the comments by some co-contesters in the governorship election who were disparaging him based on his educational qualification.

He said, “Politics come with a lot of things and there is cheap propaganda in all what they are saying.
