Prince Oyelade who condemned the act said there are better ways of agitation other than craving for bloodshed.

He cited the conduct of Prof. Banji Akintoye, a well known Yoruba nation agitator as representing the quintessential wisdom and civilization of the Yoruba race.

“Attempting to barge into the hallowed chambers of legislature and take it over with an arsenal of seven pump action submachine guns, over 700 live cartridges, is clearly an act of terrorism.” He said.

The commissioner disclosed that sponsors of Saturday’s invasion of the governor’s office and the State House of Assembly have succeeded in leading them into serious trouble.

Prince Oyelade reiterated that Oyo State remains the most peaceful state in Nigeria and Saturday’s incident will not take away that popular belief.

The commissioner noted that normalcy has since returned to Ibadan, the state capital and residents are going about their normal duties.
