A resident of the area who begged not to be mentioned noted that the community suspected ritualists to be behind the incessant killings in the local government area.

He called on the security agencies and the state government to halt the incessant killings in the local government area.

He said, “Another person was just killed in Ajibade area of sasa community this morning. This is serious. If we don’t see any serious action from those who are concerned, we will be forced to embark on a serious mass protest. Enough is enough”.

Another resident who identified himself as Kolawole noted that the state government ought to have tacked the security challenges in the local government area.

He however decried the incessant killings in the local government area.

All efforts to get the reaction of the Public Relations of the State Police Command, Mr. Olugbenga Fadeyi proved abortive as of the time of filing this report.
