Senator Ajayi Boroffice, the lawmaker representing Ondo north senatorial district, has lamented about his inability to travel to his hometown because of kidnappers.
Boroffice, who is the deputy majority leader at the upper legislative chamber, said when he visited Reuben Fasoranti, Afenifere leader, whose daughter, Funke Olakunrin, was killed by bandits on Friday.
The lawmaker said the issue of insecurity affects everyone including himself and the government which he’s a part of must do something about it.
“The government which I’m part of should find a solution to this problem. The ordinary people in Ondo state will still carry out their businesses… you can’t ask them not to go out. In the Senate, we discuss this issue of insecurity on a regular basis,” he said.
“I’m here in Akure now, I would have loved to go to Oka, my hometown but the fear is that how do I move from Akure to Oka because there is a spot near Oba where these people (kidnappers) are. So, this issue is affecting everybody.
“It’s not something that we should feel unconcerned about. We are all concerned and I believe there is something going on how to find a solution to this problem.”
