Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has vowed that those involved in the Bodija market mayhem which led to the burning down of a police station would be arrested and prosecuted.

The governor said this on Friday during an assessment visit to Bodija market and the new central abattoir at Amosun Village in Ibadan.

Suspected hoodlums on Thursday allegedly clashed with some policemen, and this led to the killing of no fewer than two traders and the razing of the police station in the market.

The state government had to quickly shut down the market to prevent further loss of lives and property.

Ajimobi condemned the lawlessness of the butchers which led to loss of lives and property.

“Our effort is to provide clean and healthy environment. We don’t want our people to consume or buy unhealthy meat that could lead to various diseases.

“The cost of peace is enforcement. I assure you that those who perpetrated this heinous crime will be arrested and made to pay for it,” he said.

The governor said the relocation directive given to the butchers in Ibadan was to promote the production of hygienic meat and cleaner environment, adding government has nothing against them.

Government, he said, would not continue to watch people politicise every policy evolved to promote socio economic well-being of the citizens.

Ajimobi was accompanied by CP Abiodun Odude and other members of the state executive council.
