On Wednesday 5th of July 2017, history was made as the secret cults members denounced their membership and vowed to turn a new leaf.
The Eiye, Ayee and Buccaneers fraternity were engaged in oath making at the Iledi Osugbo of Igbogbo to affirm their decision to denounce their membership from the secret society and ready to embrace new life.
Shortly after the oath taking they were all received at the Palace of HRM Oba Abdulsemiu Orimadegun Kasali, the Adeboruwa of Igbogbo, to properly reintegrate them into the society. They pleaded with the king to assist them to secure better job so that they can make meaningful impact in the society.
They further promised the king to form a formidable task force in Ikorodu Division to assist in curbing the rate of crime in the society. Moreover, they welcome any form of empowerment that will be initiated to rehabilitate them.
Moreover, Oba Kasali advised them never to return to their vomit as he is determined to approach the government on their behalf for appropriate rehabilitation. Kabiyesi further warned that they should refrain from any form of jungle justice meted on any suspect but to allow the Security operatives saddled with the responsibility to thoroughly do their job.
In this capacity, the king equally hosted the Neighborhood Safety Corp in his Palace due to the cordial relationship between them and the king.
Oba Kasali urged the leadership of the security agent to take the welfare and remuneration of the officers a priority. Moreover, he further implored the officers to properly manage the government property in their care, e.g. Cars and should desist from jungle justice as well.
On the final note, Oba Kasali prayed for the good people of Igbogbo kingdom not forgetting the Division and was optimistic that Ikorodu division will be vibrant and prosperous again.
