Hon Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, a member of the Osun House of Assembly, has described the killing and the abduction of eight members of staff of the Osun College of Technology, Esa Oke, by gunmen as pathetic and sad.
Oyintiloye (APC-Obokun) in a statement on Wednesday in Osogbo also described the killing of one of the college workers as barbaric.
The lawmaker, however, urged security agencies to ensure that the abducted members of staff were rescued.
Eight members of staff of the college were on Tuesday kidnapped by unidentified gunmen.
Oyintiloye, who is the House Committee Chairman on Information and Strategy, also called on security operatives to improve surveillance across the length and breadth of the state.
The lawmaker said there was an urgent need for mapping out areas prone to crimes in the state by the police.
Oyintiloye urged communities and vigilante groups to work with the police especially on information sharing, describing it as one of the most efficient ways to nip crime in the bud.
While urging the police to dig deep into the matter, Oyintiloye noted that the police should also intensify efforts in probing the matter with a view to putting an end to such an ugly act.
