Worrisomely, the Oyo state Government is yet to give this pathetic issue any attention. As at press time, No official statement has being credited to Governor Seyi Makinde on the incident of Bello Barakat’s death. 

In fact, all the social media handle of the Governor is yet to have any reaction on the case. It is even uncertain whether the governor is aware of the incidence happening. 

Available through the Twitter handle of the Governor @seyiamakinde, the Governor today inaugurated the board of the Nigerian Marble Mining Company Limited.

Mr seyi said “We inaugurated the board of the Nigerian Marble Mining Company Limited, Igbeti. While congratulating the new board members, I urged them to work towards bringing in investment in the mining sector so that it can contribute towards the expansion of the economy of Oyo State.”
