The Governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun, is seeking adequate protection of the oil rich Tongeji Island, lying between Ogun State in South-West Nigeria and the Republic of Benin.

Governor Amosun said he made the demand to ensure that the Island would not go the way of Bakassi Peninsula, which was seeded to the Republic of Cameroon.

He made the call while in a meeting with the newly appointed General Officer Commanding, 81 division of the Nigerian Army, Major General Henry Edet, at the Governor’s Office in Oke Mosan, Abeokuta, the state’s capital.

While reiterating that his administration would continue to support security agencies in the state, the governor also commended them for the relative peace in the state which he said had contributed in no small measure to the socio-economic and political development of the state. (Channels TV)
