The secret plan by some unscrupulous elements to kidnapped Arugbo at the ongoing Osun Osogbo Festival in the Capital City of the State has been alarmed by the paramount king of Osogbo, the Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh Olanipekun.
The Arugba is the key figure and the centre of attraction during the annual festival.
To foil the alleged plan, the Commissioner of Police in Osun State, Mr. Femi Oyeleye, has said the command has beefed up security in the state ahead of the Osun Festival to prevent the plan to kidnap the Arugba Osun.
The CP said this at a press conference he addressed in Osogbo on Wednesday ahead of the festival which will climax on Friday.
The CP said the police got some intelligence report on the plan to kidnap the Arugba, adding that the Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh Olanipekun, also reported the plan to him.
Oyeleye said, “We have received intelligence report that some people are planning to kidnap the Arugba Osun.
“The monarch of the town also said this. So, we have increased surveillance around the Arugba to prevent this. We have reinforced security around the Arugba and even the ‘igba’ so that the festival can go on without any hitch.
“We are also assuring worshippers and all visitors of adequate security. The crime rate in Osun State is one of the lowest in the country and we will do everything to sustain this.”
Oyeleye warned some unscrupulous policemen in the state to desist from extortion and misconduct, saying he would not allow anyone of them caught to go unpunished.
The CP stated that he had renewed his drive towards sanitising the command because this was in line with the directive of the acting Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, to reform the Police.
