Gov Makinde reveals reason behind Auxillary's arrest

The former Chairman of the state’s Park Management System, Alhaji Mukaila Lamidi, alias Auxiliary, was fired, according to Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde, who noted that a state cannot have two governments.

This was said by him during a service of thanksgiving held on Sunday to celebrate his reelection at the Cathedral of St. Peter, Aremo, Ibadan.

The governor announced the dissolution of the PMS, led by the former NURTW boss, on Tuesday through his ex-chief of staff, Segun Ogunwuyi. On Sunday, the governor announced the appointment of Oluwatomiwa Omolewa, the defunct Park Management System’s former secretary, as the new chairman.

Following the dissolution, Oyo Police Command then declared Auxillary wanted in connection with cases of attempted murder, causing grievous harm, arms dealing, murder, and armed robbery within the state.

While speaking at the thanksgiving service, Makinde assured the people that the government would reform the PMS to ensure those fomenting troubles were engaged.

The governor said, “Before the last election, it wasn’t as if there are no thugs but we called them and told them the new Oyo State we want. We don’t want them to fight themselves, we don’t want fights in our garages every time.”


“We told them, don’t fight anybody. If we are re-elected, we shall ensure we unite you so that everyone can get what belongs to him or her for people and the government to operate in the atmosphere of peace.”
