Makinde, in a statement on Twitter, said the matter is being handled by the Nigeria Police Force.
He urged citizens of the state to stay calm and ensure they report any security breaches in the state.
He said, “We are aware of the events regarding Iskilu Wakili at Kajola community in Ibarapa North LGA, and the Nigeria police’s handling of the matter. I want to assure you that we are taking all necessary steps to ensure that the interests of the good people of Oyo State are protected.
“I, therefore, urge all law-abiding citizens of the state to stay calm and go about their legitimate businesses. And to call 615 toll-free to report any security breaches in Oyo State.”
Wakili was arrested on Sunday by a joint team of Ibarapa security operatives, including Oodua Peoples Congress, Vigilante, and other groups.
